[1] One tantalising aspect of this book, published well before the start of the war in Ukraine, is that it draws attention in several places to the low-level warfare in Ukraine’s eastern regions since 2014, as if the author sensed what was coming. He probably did, because on pp. 374-80 the book offers a very interesting discussion of how the Russian state has, since the early 1990s, instrumentalised citizenship rules for ethnic Russians in neighbouring countries for a policy of expansion and destablisation that has come to the boil in the war over Ukraine’s independence and territorial integrity.
