On The Edge

Ukrainian - Central European - Russian Security Triangle

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-à-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.

Endorsements

"The important contribution of this study lies in particular in the case studies prepared by scholars from the region who have a particularly clear perception of relations between Poland, Hungary and Slovakia and Russia and the Ukraine. This does not exist anywhere else and provides an extremely important addition to our understanding of regional relations in the post Cold War environment."—John Roper

"The first book that treats relations between Central Europe and Russia comprehensivelythe virtue of the book is that it crosses the usual boundaries."—Paul D'Anieri
