This is the first book to offer a systematic and comparative analysis of
the regional political divisions in post-Soviet Ukraine and Moldova.
The study examines voting behavior and political attitudes in two
groups of regions: those which were under Russian, Ottoman, and
Soviet rule; and those which were under Austro-Hungarian, Polish,
Romanian, and Czechoslovak rule until World War I or World War II.
This book attributes the regional political divisions to the differences
in historical experience. This study helps us to better understand regional
cleavages and conflicts, not only in Ukraine and Moldova, but
also in other cleft countries.

"It [this book] will be of interest to students of the post-Communist states who seek a lucid and readable summary of the main political developments in both states, with a discussion of the historical factors that led to the cleavages still so evident in both of them."
