Описание: The fall of Communism in CEE and the dissolution of the Soviet Union at the beginning of the 1990s raised the issue of social, political and economic transformation of new independent states. In countries of the former Warsaw bloc the market transformation could be considered as complete, while in former Soviet Union states the process of transformation is not over yet. Among Eastern European countries Belarus remains one of the least reformed. The market transformation, started with gaining of independence, was suspended by Alexander Lukashenka. That said, high levels of GDP growth, certain level of economic welfare and stability were present in Belarus for quite a long time. The book investigates the factors which stand behind the viability of the present political and economic system despite low level of market reforms. It analyses the peculiarities of the present economic system, the outcomes of government politics on the Belarusian economy as a whole, and explores the institutional factors that are necessary for a post-soviet transformation in Belarus. The research will be interesting for those who would like to learn more about the political and economic system in Belarus.
Автор: Marples David Название: `Our Glorious Past`: Lukashenka`s Belarus and the Great Patriotic War ISBN: 3838206754 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783838206752 Издательство: Gazelle Book Services Цена: 48960 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: This timely book examines how the regime of President Aliaksandr Lukashenka has used the 'Great Patriotic War' (1941-45) as a key element in state and identity formation in Belarus. The campaign was discernible from 2003 and intensified after a rift with Russia that led to a re-examination of the earlier policy of close political and economic partnership. David R. Marples focuses in particular on the years 2009 and 2010, which commemorated two 65th anniversaries: the liberation of Minsk (3 July 1944) and the end of World War II in Europe (9 May 1945). Using a variety of sources, this unique book critically examines the official interpretations of the war from various angles: the initial invasion, occupation, the Partisans, historic sites and monuments, films, documentaries, museums, schools, and public occasions commemorating some of the major events. Relying on first-hand research, including books recommended by the Ministry of Education, state-controlled media and personal visits to the major historic sites and monuments of Belarus, Marples explains and measures the effectiveness of Lukashenka's program. In outlining the main tenets of the state interpretation of the war years, the book highlights the distortions and manipulations of historical evidence as well as the dismissal of alternative versions as 'historical revisionism.' It assesses the successes and weaknesses of the campaign as well as its long term effects and prospects.
Автор: Ioffe Grigory Название: Understanding Belarus and How Western Foreign Policy Misses the Mark ISBN: 1442242124 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781442242128 Издательство: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers Рейтинг: Цена: 15800 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: In the West, Belarus is generally thought of as "the last dictatorship in Europe." However, this political stereotype neglects the roots of the country's identity--or identity crisis. In this fascinating study of unfinished nation-building in Belarus, Grigory Ioffe draws on his two dozen research trips to the country to trace Belarus's history, geography, political situation, society, and economy. The book highlights rapid economic growth in post-1996 Belarus and the underpinnings of the country's political landscape. The United States has ostracized official Belarus since the mid-1990s and has repeatedly condemned President Lukashenka's undemocratic ways. However, his presidency has been stable since 1994, and since 2002 he has been successfully reshaping himself from an unabashed Russophile into a kind of Belarusian nationalist. Nevertheless, the Belarusian nation is not yet a defined entity--many Belarusians are not yet certain as to what sets them apart from Russians, and a multiplicity of national projects hinders national consolidation and deters nation-building. Ioffe pays particular attention to the current linguistic situation, in which Russian, rather than Belarusian, is the language of the majority. The ambivalent relationship between Russia and Belarus results in an identity crisis that is not understood by the West, which leads to Western policies toward Belarus that are based on a fallacy of geopolitical thinking. Based on Belarusian- and Russian-language sources along with the author's personal observations, this book will lead readers to a deeper understanding of Belarus, its relationship with Russia, and its still-forming national identity.

Описание: Jewish life in Belarus after World War II was an inaccessible subject - officially regarded as being completely non-existent - and in the ideological atmosphere of the time research into the subject was impossible.
An isolated country dominated by a single, ruthless leader, Belarus is Europe's last modern dictatorship. Despite the country's fascinating history, rich culture, and gorgeous landscape, few nonresidents travel to Belarus and take advantage of its resources, and even though the nation's people are friendly and hospitable, they nevertheless live under the constant threat of arrest.
Belarus exists outside of modern European norms, frozen in time by a tyrannical regime that fooled its citizens into thinking a new leader would grant their freedom. Instead, Alexander Lukashenko has pursued a pattern of rule as oppressive as all of those who came before him. Brian Bennett follows the history of Belarus from the collapse of the Soviet Union to the 2006 ascendance of Lukashenko. He revisits the excitement felt by many Belarussians after their first presidential election in 1994 and the cold realization that the country had returned to business as usual, as evidenced by the implementation of undemocratic referendums, fixed elections, suspicious disappearances, and the violent suppression of public opposition. Bennett concludes with a close consideration of the enigmatic Lukashenko and how his regime might one day end.
