Borderland

WAS £34.99 £17.49

Product description

Until the recent crisis, The Ukraine was one of the most neglected countries in the world. It has a population of 52 million - larger than Britain's - and a land mass the size of France; it also has Chernobyl, and after Russia is the largest nuclear power. The word 'Ukraine' means 'borderland' and for most of its history the lands that make up present-day Ukraine have been a collection of other countries' border regions. Prior to Stalinism and Nazism, Ukraine was ethnically extremely diverse, including Russians, Poles, Jews, Greeks and Armenians. Their ghosts linger in language, literature, and architecture, quite distinct from Russia's. Anna Reid examines how the history of the region has led to the crisis with Russia. Written in 1997, her book predicts a happy ending.

Hardback first edition, with dustjacket, in excellent condition: like new. Pages all crisp and unmarked, though pages edges very slightly yellowed.
