Slavic Review

"Wolczuk makes two highly convincing points on the national question and on state building that should be reflected in literature on the postcommunist transition. First, the national question was the most important obstacle in adopting the constitution. Second, the process of adopting the constitution in a new state such as Ukraine was very different from the process in established postcommunist and western states. Constitutionalism was a central element of state building in post-Soviet Ukraine."
