'The author provides an exceptionally detailed documentation of the impact of energy dependency on Ukrainian economic and political development during the Kuchma and early Yushchenko presidencies.]...[Given the central role of energy dependency in post-Soviet politics, the book will be of interest not only to students of Ukrainian and Russian affairs but also of European energy policy at large.' - NATHANIEL TRUMBULL, Europe-Asia Studies, Volume 61, 2009
