Neighbourhood Perceptions of the Ukraine Crisis : From the Soviet Union into Eurasia? (Hardcover)
about this item
Recent events in Ukraine and Russia and the subsequent incorporation of Crimea into the Russian state, with the support of some circles of inhabitants of the peninsula, have shown that the desire of people to belong to the Western part of the Europe should not automatically be assumed. Analysing different perceptions of the Ukrainian-Russian war in neighbouring countries the contributors to this book analyse the conflicts and issues connected with the shifting of the border regions of Russia and Ukraine to show how ’material’ and ’psychological’ borders are never completely stable ideas. Incorporating an interdisciplinary, comparative approach historians, sociologists, anthropologists and political scientists from across Europe explore the different national and transnational perceptions of a possible future role for Russia.
