Belarus at the Crossroad

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.

Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book explains well the background to the diplomatic freeze that set in following the June 1998 expulsion of 20 ambassadors.... [and] usefully, assesses the developments of the past few years through the prisms of Belarus's border partners..." —Alastair Wanklyn, Feature Story News, London, International Affairs, 12/13/2000
