Reviews
"A sweeping new history... an enlightening history intended for serious readers...a grim but expert history."
--Kirkus Reviews
"Ukrainian historian Yaroslav Hrytsak's vivid, sweeping book lays bare the enduring pride that persuaded his countrymen to resist Russian aggression and offers grounds for hope."--The Observer
"Hrytsak's book is set in a global context that extends beyond Ukraine's relations with Russia, Poland or even Europe as a whole...honesty and common sense ... are the book's trademark." --Financial Times
"Essential reading for understanding the intricacies of the country and the underpinnings of its current conflict...[Hrytsak] skillfully executes this ambitious project... He's also meticulous and humble, noting where previous histories may have over- or understated certain facts or figures, and he's careful to mention historical gaps or conjecture."--Shelf Awareness
