Project Summary

Examines the historical fate of Belarus by reviewing the origins and prospects for the so-called Byelorssian approach. Argues that the most wide-spread view among the Byelorussian leaders today is the need to recreate the Soviet Union, or to rebuild Market socialism. Determines that wild capitalism is impossible for the tiny country of Belarus.
