Short

Hryhorij Hrabjanka’s The Great War of Bohdan Xmel’nyc’kyi is one of several Cossack chronicles that transformed the nature of written Ukrainian history in the early eighteenth century. Written in 1710, Hrabjanka’s chronicle deals with the revolution of Hetman Bohdan Xmel’nyc’kyi and its aftermath. In his introduction Yuri Lutsenko demonstrates that the work is not so much a chronicle in the traditional sense, but rather a well-written dramatic account of events intended to glorify the achievements of the Cossacks. This volume contains facsimiles of two manuscript versions of the chronicle, as well as two published versions that have become bibliographic rarities.

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
