New Eastern Europe 2/2014 - opis książki:
A block of texts titled Putin s Powers looks at various aspects of Russian power and influence in the world today. James Sherr, British analysts with the London-based Chatham House and author of the widely discussed book Hard Diplomacy and Soft Coercion: Russias Influence Abroad, offers an acute breakdown of Russia s soft power strategy. Polish expert, Piotr Żochowski, analyses the Russian internal security apparatus and its mechanisms, while San Francisco-based professor of political science, Andrei P. Tsygankov, explains how Russia s emphasis on its distinct civilizational values drives Putin s foreign policy agenda. Lastly, Lithuanian philosopher and human rights activist, Leonidas Donskis, asks the question - Is the Russian language a failed lingua franca of Eastern Europe The issue opens up with several analyses on the situation in Ukraine. Paweł Kowal and Maciej Wapiński, in their tale of the three Maidans, show how the latest Ukraine s revolution was a continuation of two earlier upheavals after the fall of the Soviet Union. In an interview with the Mayor of Lviv, Andriy Sadovyy, the politician describes Ukraine s European identity and what it will take to modernise the state. In a thought-provoking piece, Ukrainian journalist, Milan Lelich, depicts the two mentalities that exist in the country: in the east and the west, whereas civil society activist Halyna Senyk sketches the immense corruption that plagued Ukraine during the Viktor Yanukovych presidency.
The issue also includes two articles that discuss the concept of Central Europe, revisiting Milan Kundera s seminal essay The Tragedy of Central Europe, in the context of the region today.
