Item description for On the Edge: Ukrainian-Central European-Russian Security Triangle by Margarita Mercedes Balmaceda...
A new globally significant relationship arising after the break-up of the Soviet Union is the main topic of this unparalleled volume - the geopolitical link between Russia, Ukraine and the three bordering 'Central European' states, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. On the Edge is a path-breaking analysis of this triangular relationship with an in-depth focus on economic, political and more importantly, security issues.
The expansion of NATO up to Ukraine's borders is likely to leave Ukraine in a delicate position vis--vis Russia. On the Edge addresses key questions, such as: how are events in Ukraine affecting the security calculations of the Central European states; Central European relations with Russia and NATO; and relations among Central European states themselves? The volume examines what Central European states can do to solidify Ukraine's independence and help it avoid international isolation.
On the Edge gives a Central European perspective on all these issues and suggests concrete forms of co-operation.
