The Gates of Europe: A History of Ukraine

by Serhii Plokhy - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141980614 | ISBN 10: 0141980613

"An indispensable guide to the tragic history of a great European nation"
((Sunday Telegraph) from the author of Chernobyl, winner of the Baillie Gifford Prize)
"This is present-minded history at its most urgent. Anyone wanting to understand why Russia and the West confront each other over the future of Ukraine will want to read Serhii Plokhy's reasoned, measured yet passionate account"
(Michael Ignatieff)
Located at the western edge of the Eurasian steppe, Ukraine has long been the meeting place of empires - Roman to Ottoman, Habsburg to Russian - and they all left their imprint on the landscape, the language and the people living within these shifting borders. In this authoritative book, Harvard Professor Serhii Plokhy traces the history of Ukraine from the arrival of the Vikings in the tenth century to the current Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine and annexation of Crimea.
 
Fascinating and multilayered, The Gates of Europe is the essential guide to understanding not just Ukraine's past but also its future.
