Political Parties in Post-Soviet Space
Anatoly Kulik
0275973441
Oct 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Anatoly Kulik and Susanna Pshizova have compiled an engaging and comprehensive, cross-national study that explores the stormy political developments in the post-Soviet countries. They gathered essays regarding the formation of the various new democratic institutions of Russia, the Baltic States, the Slavic States, and Moldova. The contributors are all distinguished scholars indigenous to their areas of focus; consequently, they are able to provide a true insider's perspective of the political climates of their respective lands. Kulik and Pshizova have organized the studies into seven generously detailed, nation-specific chapters that permit readers to see the individual party systems in both their sub-regional contexts as well as in their national ones.

Book Description
In December 2001, a new Russian law laying the basis for the peaceful territorial expansion of the Russian Federation went into effect. The entire country of Belarus-as well as parts of Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine-are the most likely candidates to join Russia. Should this largely ethnically-based expansion occur, Russia would grow by more than 20 million people, and the resultant rise in Russian nationalism might encourage further Russian territorial ambitions-especially those directed at Ukraine. Even if Russian expansion stops with all, or part, of these territories, however, it could breathe new life into the ethnically based border problems of other countries. Co-published with the American Foreign Policy Council.

Hardcover

Book Description
Why has social peace been preserved in some new, nationalizing countries in Eastern Europe and broken down in others? While civil peace has reigned in Estonia, Moldova experienced a bloody civil war in 1992, claiming more than a thousand casualties. These two states in question share a number of common characteristics, but there is one important difference. Employing both on the ground empirical studies and a strong theoretical framework, National Integration and Violent Conflict in Post-Soviet Societies contributes to a better understanding of national integration process in Estonia and Moldova and of national integration and communal violence in general.

Moldova and the Transdnestr Republic
Nicholas Dima
0880334770
Sept 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Today the self-proclaimed republic of Moldova, a former province of Romania, is at the center of Russia's geopolitical strategies toward the Balkans. Nicholas Dima provides a concise historical background of Moldova from its years as a territory of the Soviet empire to the post-Soviet era when Russia refused to relinquish its grasp on the disputed region. The core of the book details the political upheaval of the 1980s, the independence of Moldova, and Russia's subsequent maneuvering of the region back under Moscow's control. Dima shows how Moscow is now attempting to regain its former geopolitical power by means of assistance to the self-proclaimed Transdnestr region of Moldova -- the last Marxist stronghold in the former Soviet space -- through which it could potentially gain a new foothold on the Balkans and...

Carved Memories

January 15, 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
For more than a century, Russian Jews were restricted to residence in the western provinces of Russia, the so-called Pale of Settlement. In this fascinating volume, 125 duotone photographs document the carved tombstones of this region, specifically present-day Ukraine and Moldova. The stones are poignant memorials to the lost world of the shtetl and practically all that remain of a major Jewish art tradition. They are also unique genealogical records for Americans descended from Russian Jewry. The photographs, made by the artist and photographer David Goberman from the 1930s through the 1960s, are in many cases the sole documentation of tombstones that have been effaced or destroyed.

An introduction by Robert Pinsky resonates with the once-vibrant culture of Eastern Jewry. Essays by Goberman and Gershon Hundert,...
