Intends to explore both Belarus' complicated road to nationhood and to examine in detail its politics and economics since 1991, the nation's first year of true independence. The author focuses on Aliaksandr Lukashenka's surprising longevity as president, despite human rights abuses and involvement in yet another rigged election in December 2010.
