„Global Consequences of Russia's Invasion of
Ukraine: The Economics and Politics of the Second Cold War”
– such is the title of the book by Professor Kolodko published by
SPRINGER: “This book highlights the geopolitical and economic
consequences of the Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The author, a key
architect of Polish economic reforms and the most frequently cited
economist from post-Communist countries, shares new insights into the
causes and mechanisms of the Second Cold War. Written in an unorthodox,
bold and lucid style, the book raises provocative issues and provides
convincing answers to some of the most difficult questions, such as who
the true beneficiaries and interest groups behind the war are, and what
their motives and conflicting goals are. The book also introduces
readers to the greatest challenge of our time, climate change, and
explores the long-term effects of the current arms race and rearmament
spiral on global warming. This interdisciplinary book, which also
addresses the challenges of inflation, mass migrations and clashes
between democracy and authoritarianism, will appeal to anyone
interested in the contemporary geopolitical shifts triggered by the
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but also in the dynamics and directions
of the evolution of the new cold war.”
