Summary "Ukrainian Politics and Society is the first comprehensive study of politics in post-Soviet Ukraine and is therefore vital reading for anyone concerned with European security or with politics in the former Soviet Union."--BOOK JACKET. "By examining in detail how Ukrainian politics has followed theoretical expectations and where it has contradicted them, the authors arrive at conclusions with implications well beyond Ukraine. Ukraine must first build a state and a nation before it can successfully reform its economy or build a genuine democracy. For Ukraine and its people, the task is daunting. For the west, whose security increasingly relies on stability in Ukraine, this book provides the knowledge necessary to approach the problem, as well as good reason not to ignore it."--BOOK JACKET.
