An international group of contributors, specialists in their particular fields, discuss many aspects of Ukraine’s contemporary culture. Part I has chapters dealing with history, politics, and religion, Part II deals with literary culture, Part III discusses language, popular culture, media, and the arts. A fascinating picture of a young European state grappling with its divided past and its colonial heritage. Europe becomes a powerful point of reference, a measure against which the situation in post-independence Ukraine is gauged and debated.
