The Ukraine under normal conditions is a highly esoteric topic for North Americans and Western Europeans. The country has never been on the Grand Tour, is expensive to get to and hard to travel in without an automobile. Nonetheless, it is September 2014. The Ukraine is at war again with Russia and this would be a good time to learn a little of the history of this country.Magosci is nothing less than masterful in tying together the political, military, economic and cultural events of the Ukraine [...]

To be fair, I only read the last two chapters, since I really need to get this research paper going. This is a book that I fully intent to go back and read cover to cover, though. The writing of the last two chapters is brilliant and clear and I very much look forward to learning about pre-Soviet Ukraine as soon as I have a minute :)
