How Ukraine Became a Market Economy

One of Europe's old nations steeped in history, Ukraine today is a democracy and has transformed into a market economy with predominant private ownership. Anders Åslund accounts for this journey, tackling the challenges regarding political instability surrounding Ukraine's identity as a European State. Åslund's study of Ukraine's amazing transformation blends impressive analytical skills, deep factual knowledge and masterly narrative.

Feminist Media Studies

Feminist Media Studies is a peer-reviewed academic journal covering media and communication studies from a feminist perspective.

In What do women really want? Exploring Contemporary Ukrainian Women’s Magazines," the authors argue that Ukrainian women's periodical press does not fully meet the needs of its audience in today's society, and that the interests of women are much broader than the topics presented in popular media forms. Their study reveals that women readers are of the view that there is a need to expand the range of content to include a wider array of practical advice, educational, social, and political material.
