Reviews for the series:
"Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections." - A. Siaroff, CHOICE, 2010 (Democratic Elections in Poland, 1991-2007).
"This excellent collection is a coherent and well-informed introduction to the economic and social transformations in a major Soviet ‘rustbelt’region, as well as to the economic conundrums of post-Communist Ukraine." - Serhy Yekelchyk, Slavonic and East European Review, vol. 89, no. 2, April 2011 (Re-Constructing the Post-Soviet Industrial Region).
"A valuable addition to Russian foreign-policy analysis, especially for its use of comparison between policies towards China and Japan in order to explain different trends in Russian thinking about its own identity in the turbulent period of the last two decades." -Stephen Aris, University of Birmingham, Europe-Asia Studies (Russian Policy towards China and Japan).
