Belarus at the Crossroads
Sherman W. Garnett Robert Legvold
| Price: $ 12.95
Belarus, although frequently overlooked in the West, is a country critical to the development of the post-Soviet states and to Europe as a whole. Its location alone¿bordering Russia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine¿points to its importance as a major geopolitical player. On top of that, the ambitions of its president mean that Belarus will likely have a say in the future of Russia, Ukraine, and other neighboring states.
To address what, to date, has been short-sighted and potentially dangerous neglect of this country, the editors of this book bring together essays by specialists from Belarus, Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, and the United States to focus on Belarus¿s place in the evolving European security environment. No other publication has taken such a diverse approach to this little-understood country.
Sherman Garnett is dean of James Madison College at Michigan State University. Robert Legvold is a professor of political science at Columbia University.
