The Future of the Past - New Perspectives on Ukrainian History, Paperback / softback Book

The Future of the Past - New Perspectives on Ukrainian History Paperback / softback


Ukraine is in the midst of the worst international crisis in East-West relations since the Cold War, and history itself has become a battleground in Russia-Ukraine relations.

Can history and historical narratives be blamed for what has happened in the region, or can they show the path to peace and reconciliation, helping to integrate the history of the region in the broader European context?The essays collected here address these questions, rethinking the meaning of Ukrainian history by venturing outside boundaries established by the national paradigm, and demonstrating how research on the history of Ukraine can benefit from both regional and global perspectives.

The Future of the Past shows how the study of Ukraine's past enhances our understanding of Europe, Eurasia, and the world--past, present, and future.
