Although English-language histories of Ukraine have been published since the 1930s, there has been no one-volume compendium of articles covering Ukrainian history from ancient times to the present, emphasizing the modern period. This dictionary introduces Ukraine to the reader through 700 entries on population, geography, economy, politics, and culture; descriptions of institutions, cultural monuments, political parties, battles and wars; and biographical sketches of key individuals in politics, the arts and sciences, the church, and the military.

Editorial Reviews

Compiled by Kohut (Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, U. of Alberta, Canada), Nebesio (English and film studies, U. of Alberta), and Yurkevich (senior editor of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies Press), this dictionary presents some 700 entries covering Ukrainian population, geography, economy, politics, and culture; descriptions of institutions, political parties, and military events; and biographical sketches of important figures in politics, culture, the church, and the military. The bulk of the material treats the history of the Ukraine from the 18th century onwards. As in other volumes in the series, the authors also include maps, a chronology, a bibliography, and an introductory essay.
