In terms of population size, economic resources, and historic importance, Ukraine was second only to Russia among the Soviet republics. Yet its viability as an independent state seemed problematic, not least because of its long-established role as Russia's "junior partner" in ruling the USSR; the complex cultural heritage of its history as a borderland of empires; and its reluctance to embark upon economic reform even as it sought political connection with the West. Thus the irony that Ukraine, although the last of the post-Soviet states to adopt a new constitution, is arguably the first to establish a democratic precedent for transfer of executive power to the opposition.

With strong international contributors writing on central questions, this is the best current survey of the Ukrainian transition, with attention to: state building; national identity; political, economic, and social development; and security issues.
