The complex interrelationship between Russia and Ukraine is arguably the most important single factor in determining the future politics of the Eurasian region. In this book Andrew Wilson examines the phenomenon of Ukrainian nationalism and its influence on the politics of independent Ukraine, arguing that historical, ethnic and linguistic factors limit the appeal of narrow ethno-nationalism, even to many ethnic Ukrainians. Nevertheless, ethno-nationalism has a strong emotive appeal to a minority, who may therefore undermine Ukraine's attempts to construct an open civic state. Ukraine is therefore a fascinating test case for alternative nation-building strategies in countries of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

Industry Reviews

'This study on Ukrainian nationalism fills an important research gap and covers an enormous amount of original historical and political material. ... All in all, this is a book that will soon be a standard item in the field of Ukrainian studies. In many ways it can even be used as a kind of encyclopaedia.' Gwendolyn Sasse, London School of Economics
