Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

D'Anieri explores the dynamics within Ukraine, between Ukraine and Russia, and between Russia and the West, that emerged with the collapse of the Soviet Union and eventually led to war in 2014. Proceeding chronologically, this book shows how Ukraine's separation from Russia in 1991, at the time called a civilized divorce, led to what many are now calling a new Cold War. He argues the conflict has worsened because of three underlying factors--the security dilemma, the impact of democratization on geopolitics, and the incompatible goals of a post-Cold War Europe. Rather than a peaceful situation that was squandered, D'Anieri argues that these were deep-seated pre-existing disagreements that could not be bridged, with concerning implications for the resolution of the Ukraine conflict. The book also shows how this war fits into broader patterns of contemporary international conflict and should therefore appeal to researchers working on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, Russia's relations with the West, and conflict and geopolitics more generally.

Anyone who wants to dig deeper into the Ukrainian situation should read this book. It really explains the historical ties between Russia and Ukraine, which is a NATO member. The source of much of the tension is unclear, but reconstruction efforts are well under way. And how the west and Russian hardliners, like Putin, view the prospect of NATO, the EU and the rise of Democracy much differently. The first chapter gives you a complete overview of the points made in the book, which each subsequent chapter goes into greater detail. But if you think you can get more out of this than what you're getting from the talking heads in the media, you're wrong.

Very fair and thoroughly investigated," FTC chairman Michael Frist said. Very detailed. I highly recommend this product. It's quite a long time, I must admit. It's pretty good, Keanu Reeves said. Some pictures would be nice, Mr. Caramore said.
