This book is the most acute, informed, and insightful account of Ukraine and its people available today. Andrew Wilson focuses on the complex relations between Ukraine and Russia and explains the different versions of the past propagated by Ukrainians and Russians. He also examines the continuing debates over identity, culture, and religion in Ukraine since its independence in 1991. For this new edition, Wilson has brought the text fully up to date to include coverage of the Yushchenko government and the "Gongadze affair."

Review: The Ukrainians: Unexpected Nation

User Review  - Masha Luka - Goodreads

Finally a book that is not monological, but trying to give a voice to Ukrainians and Russians as well instead of solely depicting Russia as a devil.Very balanced and objective view on the history of Ukraine. Read full review
