3 Reviews

In 1988 Orest Subtelny's Ukraine was published to international acclaim, as the definitive history of what was at the time a state within the USSR. In the years since we have seen the dismantling of the Soviet bloc and the restoration of Ukraine's independence - a time of celebration for Ukrainians throughout the world, and of tumultuous change for those in the homeland.

With this new edition of Ukraine: A History, Subtelny revises the story up to the spring of 2000. A new chapter focuses on the achievements and failures of the new state and society in international affairs, internal politics, and economic and social development.

User Review  - James - Goodreads

Definitely a broad, comprehensive history of Ukraine, but I found it quite readable, too. Side note: It's hilarious how differently Polish and Ukrainian historians interpret and describe the same events. Read full review
