"The go-to book for grasping Ukrainians' morale in the face of Russian aggression, and the determination of their president, who has demonstrated atmospheric levels of heroism and leadership-perhaps unlike any other in the world in recent decades." -- Marc Berenson, Senior Lecturer at King's Russia Institute, King's College London

"This wonderfully written and engaging book documents the emergence of Ukrainian civic national identity, best exemplified by Zelensky. A must-read for anyone wishing to understand contemporary Ukraine and what Ukrainians believe, value and fight for." -- Eugene Finkel, Kenneth H. Keller Associate Professor of International Affairs, Johns Hopkins University

"Drawing on years of research on Ukrainian politics and society, this timely study paints a fuller picture of Zelensky and the conditions that made him who he is today, and deserves a wide readership at this critical moment in European history." -- Gwendolyn Sasse, Director of the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS)

"An essential book for understanding how a critical mass of Ukrainians converged around a vision of Ukraine grounded in democratic ideals, a European future and sovereign statehood." -- Oxana Shevel, Associate Professor of Political Science, Tufts University, and an associate of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and of the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Harvard University

"Furnishing significant insight into Russia"s invasion of Ukraine, this sheds light as well on one of the most important (and improbable) leaders of the twenty-first century." -- Michael Kimmage, Professor of History, Catholic University of America, and Visiting Fellow, German Marshall Fund
