Review quote

Stereotypes of Moldova as a Russian pawn or an EU protectorate are debunked by a well-known team of authors and insiders, revealing the nuts and bolts of national policies and interests vis-a-vis Chisinau. At last, Moldova: Arena of International Influences is an in-depth study probing beyond generic EU policies for Moldova; an excellent analysis of national policies. -- Wim van Meurs, History Department, Radboud University Nijmegen This is a unique updated volume, which covers the broad spectrum of bilateral relations between Moldova and eighteen countries, including the US, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, France, Germany, and Italy, set within the foreign policy perspectives of each of these countries towards Chisinau. It is an excellent collection of essays, chock full of useful facts and details, which combines foreign policy diversity with common themes such as the Europeanization of Moldova. -- Robert Weiner, University of Massachusetts, Bostonshow more
