About the Authors
  • This work examines the impact of nationalism on the politics of Ukraine, arguably the most important of the non-Russian States to emerge from the collapse of the USSR in 1991. Whereas in many other emergent states in Eastern Europe nationalism has filled the ideological vacuum caused by the collapse of communism, to date Ukraine has managed to steer clear of the kind of aggressive ethno-nationalism that has destabilized politics elsewhere in the region. However, an increasingly vocal and frustrated minority may become more and more influential if the economic and/or security situation in the region rapidly deteriorates.

    • The first in-depth analytical survey of the politics of modern Ukraine, the most important country in the former USSR after Russia
    • Uses a wide range of primary resources, archive research, and interviews with leading figures
    • Puts Ukrainian nationalism in historical context, and relates it to debates over nationalism and ethnic problems in other countries

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book contains considerable material useful in understanding the situation in Ukraine in the late 1980's and early 1990's." The Harriman Review

    "The author shows in a clear and effective manner how the legacy of division in Ukrainian society has severely limited the development of Ukrainian nationalism in the 1990s. The author's brief descriptions of Ukrainian history and philosophical traditions are well-written and cruicial to the explantion of the present-day situation in the nationalist camp. However, the meat of Wilson's book lies in his analysis of the rise of the national revival movement in the 1990s and, most interestingly, its base of support and consequntial domestic and foreign policy platforms." Nancy Popson, Nationalities Papers

    "Overall, Wilson's book is scholarly effort. Impressively researched...The volume is well written, lucidly argued and logically structured...the book offers a remarkable insight into both Ukrainian nationalism and the polarization of Ukrain in the 1990's." Can Slavonic Papers
