Details

With his election to the Ukrainian presidency, Viktor Yushchenko became a hero throughout the world for his courage in the face of nearly overwhelming adversity. After three elections (two of them marred by fraud), one attempted murder by poison, one revolution, and one decision by the Supreme Court of Ukraine, he was able to win the first truly free elections in his nation’s history. However, his real challenges were just beginning. Yushchenko was elected president of a country still struggling with independence, a country tainted by its history of corrupt and ruthless leadership. Victor Yushchenko is an astutely written, handsomely illustrated biography of the leader of one of the world's most significant nascent democracies. Will Yushchenko be able to keep his campaign promises? Will he be able to build closer ties between Ukraine and the West, and transform his nation into a true democracy? These issues and more are highlighted in this title.
