This title was first published in 2002. Examining the development of and rationale behind the Ukrainian export control system, this text uses an original theoretically informed case study methodology to explain how and why Ukraine has continued to emphasize the importance of not only maintaining but augmenting its export control system. Furthermore, it assesses the utility of four international relations approaches in explaining non-proliferation export control development. This ground-breaking study on Ukrainian politics and economics is ideally suited to audiences of European, Ukrainian and US policy-makers, academics and specialists in security and political economy.


’This volume provides an interesting and informative case study which should be of equal interest to area studies and international relations specialists, as well as policy analysts and practitioners dealing with arms control and non-proliferation issues.’ Dr Derek Averre, Research Fellow, Centre for Russian and East European Studies, University of Birmingham, UK ’This book effectively uses social science theory to illuminate a vital contemporary policy issue: why Ukraine established and has continued to develop a non-proliferation export control system… Whither Ukraine� will be instructive both to those who seek a better understanding of the obstacles to and opportunities for preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and to theoretically-oriented students of international relations.’ Professor John S. Duffield, Georgia State University, Atlanta, USA ’Scott Jones’s book is timely, it is well-written…and it ought to find a place on the shelf of any library serving institutions concerned with politics or international relations.’ East-West Review
