Birth of a Modern Nation

Serhy Yekelchyk

Among the largest states in Europe, Ukraine first appeared on the world map in 1991 and has been in the newspaper headlines since the Orange Revolution of 2004, which brought Victor Yushchenko to power. In current events, this state has been seen as symbolic of the relationship between Russia and the United States. Yekelchyk, a Ukrainian born and Western trained historian, delivers a concise volume tracing the complex, multiethnic history of Ukraine from the late 19th century to the present.
