A HistoryBook - 1989
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 & the restoration of Ukraine's independence - a time of celebration for Ukrainians throughout the world, & of tumultuous change for those in the homeland. With the new edition, Subtelny revises the story up to the spring of 2000. A new chapter focuses on the achievements & failures of the new state & society in international affairs, internal politics & economic & social development.
