The unrest and violence in the Ukraine this year have shocked the world, and the long-term future of Ukraine remains troublingly uncertain. This book demonstrates how the Ukraine reached this turbulent point through a focus on the difficulty of Kiev’s transition from socialism to market democracy. Roman Adrian Cybriwsky delves deeply into the changing social geography of the city, recent urban development, and critical problems such as official corruption, inequality, sex tourism, and the heedless destruction of the city’s historical architecture—all difficulties that have contributed incrementally to Ukrainian citizens’ anger against their government.
