"…up-to-date and packed with information of use to students." - Booklist

Since the late 20th century, the political situation in Ukraine has gone from bad to worse. President Leonid Kuchma, in office since 1994, has been accused of assuming authoritarian power for himself, and corruption and scandal have tainted his administration. In 1999, Viktor Yushchenko, leader of a pro-reform movement, became Prime Minister but was dismissed by parliament less than two years later. Today the economy continues to decline, with severe problems such as rising unemployment, little reform, and a slowly devaluating currency adding to the country's difficulties.

Ukraine, Second Edition traces the political, economic, and cultural history of this vibrant country, detailing recent changes and bringing coverage fully up to date. This compelling reference provides completely current information, including results from recent elections. Also included are profiles on contemporary leaders, statistics and information regarding the country's economic and political status, and a discussion of present and future problems the area now faces. Informative and appealing, this volume provides a comprehensive foundation for both scholars, middle and high school students, and anyone interested in learning more about this great nation.
