ORDER IT -> Language and Travel Guide to Ukraine (Paperback)
- From Library Journal Now the capital of independent Ukraine, Kiev has had a long and varied history. The center of Russian national development during medieval times (Kievan Rus), it was one of the great European cities until the Mongol juggernaut of A.D. 1240 reduced it to obscure backwater status for almost 600 years. The author (history, Centre Coll., Kentucky) carefully examines those forces that prompted its 19th-century renaissance, e.g., a geographical predisposition to become a major agricultural and communications center. He also explores such topics as Kiev's extraordinary ethnic diversity, its social and cultural resources, and its role in an emerging revolutionary tradition. The heavy use of statistics and general avoidance of the dramatic clearly circumscribe the book's potential audience, but as the first "biography" of Kiev readily available in English, this should be added to most academic collections. - Mark R. Yerburgh, Fern Ridge Community Lib., Veneta, Ore. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

- Review: This dictionary is the best I could find for the price. To get the same quality of Ukrainian-English dictionary as this would cost well over $60. It has 679 pages of definitions and a very good notes for Ukrainian grammar. The Ukrainian grammar in the front is helpful while learning the language because it gives a quick reference to declensions and verb conjugation while writing or talking. I also love the size. It is very portable in size and paperback makes it easy to transport. (by Ukraine Lover (League City, TX))

Russia, Ukraine, and the Breakup of the Soviet Union (Paperback)
- This book chronicles the final two decades in the history of the Soviet Union and presents a story that is often lost in the standard interpretations of the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and the USSR. Although there were numerous reasons for the collapse of communism, it did not happen—as it may have seemed to some—overnight. To understand why the USSR broke up the way it did, it is necessary to understand the relationship between the two most important nations of the USSR—Russia and Ukraine—during the Soviet period and before, as well as the parallel but interrelated processes of nation formation in both states.
