Ships from and sold by GEORGE STORE. This indecision between a political science or a pure historical approach produces an uneven, and to me, largely unreadable work.
The Ukrainians: Unexpected Nation" by Andrew Wilson is a wonderful introduction to a now well-known country and people. Wilson's purpose, somewhat dissimilar to conventional histories, is to trace the development of the nation and draw distinctions between mythology and history. Russians generally perceive Ukrainians to be a part of their nation, explaining the great sense of loss when, in 1991, Ukraine became independent. Ukrainians consistently make the case that they have a distinct heritage and culture

Andrew Wilson's history of Ukraine is unlike any other book written on the subject. It does not attempt to cover the entire history of Ukraine from classical antiquity to the present, like Orest Subtelny's landmark book, Ukraine. Rather, the book's thesis looks backwards from Ukrainian Independence and asks how such a nation came into existence, and weighs its chances for survival. I grew up in a Ukrainian emigre community that taught one rigid perspective on Ukrainian history - the Ukrainian nationalist perspective.

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.
