Belarus: The Last European Dictatorship

by Andrew Wilson - £10.99  Yale University Press (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780300259216 | ISBN 10: 0300259212

A comprehensive and revelatory history of modern Belarus - from independence to 2020's contested election.
 
In 2020 Belarus made headlines around the world when protests erupted in the aftermath of a fraught presidential election. Andrew Wilson explores both Belarus's complicated road to nationhood and its politics and economics since it gained independence in 1991. Two new chapters reveal the extent of Aliaksandr Lukashenka's grip on power, the growth of the opposition movement and the violent crackdown that followed the vote.
 
Wilson also examines the prospects for Europe as a whole of either Lukashenka's downfall or his survival with Russian support.
