'One of the best works on Ukraine's highly peculiar geography, history and modernity I’ve ever come across . . . Books such as this inspire hope that the struggle is not in vain and that Ukraine will eventually emerge as a fully edged European state.' - Vitali Vitaliev, Geographical Magazine

'Among the very few texts written in our century which reveal the psychological core and philosophical essence of the challenges thinking citizens now face.’ - Timothy Snyder, Yale University

In Ukraine: A Nation on the Borderland, now available in paperback and with a new foreword by the author, Karl Schlögel presents a picture of a country which lies on Europe’s borderland and in Russia’s shadow. In recent years, Ukraine has been faced, along with Western Europe, with the political conundrum resulting from Russia’s actions and the ongoing Information War. As well as exploring this confrontation, Schlögel provides detailed, fascinating historical portraits of a panoply of Ukraine’s major cities: Lviv, Odessa, Czernowitz, Kiev, Kharkov, Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk and Yalta – cities whose often troubled and war-torn histories are as varied as the nationalities and cultures which have made them what they are today, survivors with very particular identities and aspirations. Schlögel feels the pulse of life in these cities, analysing their more recent pasts and their challenges for the future.


'Through Karl Schlögel’s encounter with Ukraine the reader will understand the crisis of democratic politics in the West as a whole. It is among the very few texts written in our century which reveal the psychological core and philosophical essence of the challenges thinking citizens now face.' --Timothy Snyder, Professor of History, Yale University

'Schlögel takes us on a tour of the cities of Ukraine, revealing the diversity, complexity and importance of a country too often seen through a reductive East/West binary . . . All these cities suffered from Russian nationalism, from Stalin's great famine, and from a horrific German occupation, that Schlögel describes with a restrained rage.' --Owen Hatherley

'A powerful and erudite assertion of Ukraine’s legitimacy as a nation-state, its rich cultural heritage, and the underlying sources of Russia’s campaign against it. In the book, Schlögel, a renowned scholar and life-long admirer of Russia, takes his readers on a tantalising historical and intellectual tour of Ukraine’s major cities.' --International Politics and Society
