Ilnytzkyj’s great achievement is to demonstrate that Semenko’s followers were in fact part of the mainstream attempt in the first quarter of the century to transcend the rural basis of Ukrainian identity and create a new, vibrant and more ’modern’ sense of self.—Andrew Wilson, Slavic and East European Review [UK]

[Ukrainian Futurism] will be a landmark in Ukrainian literary history since it offers, for the first time, a critical and historical analysis of this neglected subject. It will also receive high marks for meticulous research and balanced, well-argued conclusions. The best way of acquainting the Ukrainian reader with it would be to translate and publish [it] in Ukrainian, for it is very doubtful that a critical work of comparable acumen will be published any time soon… To read Ilnytzkyj’s book is to savor the many strands of the rich Ukrainian cultural tapestry in the critical post-World War I epoch.—George S. N. Luckyj, The Slavic Review

Jacket: The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, by Khalil Gibran Muhammad, from Harvard University Press

“Predictive Policing” and Racial Profiling

While technology used in policing has improved, it hasn’t progressed, says Khalil Gibran Muhammad, if racial biases are built into those new technologies. This excerpt from his book, The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, shows that for the reform called for by the current protests against systemic racism and racially-biased policing to be fulfilled, the police—especially those at the top—will need to change their pre-programmed views on race and the way they see the Black citizens they are supposed to “serve and protect.”
