About this book

This book addresses the complex origins of the Ukrainian crisis. It places the crisis in a longer-term perspective and shows how the domestic political regime interpreted, balanced and eventually chose between the competing integration offers of Russia and the EU. It also explores the key implications for Ukraine's relations with the EU and Russia.

Reviews

“The book will appeal to a broad audience stretching from undergraduates and scholars in a range of disciplines and specialisms to policymakers. While crisply written for a more general audience, area specialists will find some fascinating detail on the integration processes and a refreshingly nuanced account that contributes significantly to unpicking some prevailing myths about the ‘crisis’. It deserves to be widely read.” (Sarah Whitmore, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 68 (6), 2016)
