Orange Revolution and Aftermath:  Mobilization, Apathy, and the State in Ukraine, edited by Paul D'Anieri

Orange Revolution and Aftermath: Mobilization, Apathy, and the State in Ukraine

After the success of the Orange Revolution, it was widely expected that civil society groups would take an increasingly prominent role in Ukrainian politics, reinvigorating democracy. Yet that influence diminished rapidly, and when the new government also became tainted with corruption, there was no protest or counterattack. Orange Revolution and Aftermath: Mobilization, Apathy, and the State in Ukraine explores why the influence of civil society groups waned so quickly.

Migration, Homeland, and Belonging in Eurasia, edited by Cynthia J. Buckley and Blair A. Ruble with Erin Trouth Hofmann

Migration, Homeland, and Belonging in Eurasia

Migration, a force throughout the world, has special meanings in the former Soviet lands. Soviet successor countries, each with strong ethnic associations, represent a fascinating mix of the motivations and achievements of migration in Russia and Central Asia. Migration, Homeland, and Belonging in Eurasia examines patterns of migration and sheds new light on government interests, migrant motivations, historical precedents, and community identities.
