Using this book for my research project in Politics of Post-Soviet Eurasia. This was published in 1993, so it's an interesting primary source. Kuchma is only referenced very very briefly, as he had just appeared on the stage. As such, much of this book isn't actually pertinent to my research, and I just barely skimmed the economics chapter. It's late and I'm getting rambly. Long story short, this was a pretty decent book, but must be used as a primary source now, as it is very dated.
