Product description

This book is the most acute, informed, and up-to-date account available today of Ukraine and its people. Andrew Wilson brings his classic work up to the present, through the Orange Revolution and its aftermath, including the 2006 election, the ensuing crisis of 2007, the Ukrainian response to the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008, the economic crisis in Ukraine, and the 2009 gas dispute between Russia and Ukraine. It looks forward to the key election in 2010, which will revisit many of the issues that were thought settled in 2004. Praise for earlier editions: "Marvelous...A perfect introduction to a fascinating culture: strongly recommended." --Library Journal "[A] sweeping introductory examination of Ukrainian identity and history...An exceptional history, the kind that supplies not pat answers but food for thought within a lush context of documented and mythological past."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Review quote

"A lively, detailed and eminently sensible exploration of who the Ukrainians are and why they are important, and it should become required reading for anyone with a serious interest in Eastern Europe." Literary Review "This important book is elegantly written and rich in information from various sources, in inspiring insights and interpretations... It is fascinating reading." Slavic Review"
