Whose Democracy: Nationalism, Religion, and the Doctrine of Collective Rights in Post-1989 Eastern Europe
The years since the collapse of communism in 1989 have witnessed a dangerous renewal of religious intolerance and nationalist demands across Eastern Europe. In this provocative application of moral philosophy to contemporary political processes, Sabrina P. Ramet draws upon the literature of Natural Law to demonstrate that liberal democracy depends on a delicate balance between individual and societal rights. Appeals to the collective rights of national and religious groups rest on spurious claims, as Ramet convincingly shows in her analysis of the situations of Hungarians in Slovakia, Albanians in Kosovo, theoretically inclined Catholic bishops in Poland, Serbs in Croatia, and contending forces in post-Dayton Bosnia. What Ramet calls the doctrine of collective rights actually subverts the liberal democratic project, legitimating instead intolerance and group exclusivity.

The Ukrainian Resurgence CB
Ukraine's Re-emergence from Political Oblivion and its achievement of independence were major historical events which changed the map of Europe and altered international relations in general. Yet, because it was politically submerged for so long, Ukraine's history quest for independence, and current situation are still little known. This major study, written by a leading specialist, aims to fill this gap and makes an important contribution to the scholarly and journalistic literature on the former Soviet Union and the new states of the Commonwealth of Independent States.The Ukrainian Resurgence provides a concise recent political history of a significant new European state and offers new insight into how the Soviet Union collapsed. Drawing on an extensive range of sources, including interviews with key political and cultural figures, Bohdan Nahaylo traces developments in Soviet-ruled Ukraine from the beginning of the Gorbachev era and the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, through the turbulent years of glasnost, perestroika, and the emergence of the mass national democratic movement, Rukh, to Ukraine's rejection of the idea of a revamped Soviet Union. He then explores how Ukraine, in the face of economic crisis, internal divisions, and friction with Russia, consolidated independence and democracy.The Ukrainian Resurgence is essential reading for students, scholars, and policy makers who seek a better understanding of the nature of the former Soviet Union and the reasons for its collapse, as well as a clearer sense of the political landscape which has emerged after the USSR's dissolution. Above all, the book provides a wonderful introduction and guide to Ukraine's recent past and itspresent dilemmas.
