This volume is a welcome contribution to the history of this ancient Ukrainian Rus’ land located south of the Carpathain mountains. Written by an individual who played an important role as the representative of this land in Czechoslovak government circles during the years leading up to World War II, this book offers new documentary evidence on the incorporation of this land in the Czechoslovak republic, its geopolitical importance, Hungarian, Polish, and German maneuvering in the region, the eventual dependence, and the region’s incorporation into the Ukrainian SSR in 1945...The book is very welcome, not only for its insights into the workings of the internal machinery of Czechoslovakia in the interwar period and especially in 1938, but as a lesson for statesmen of today who in a highly fractious world have to deal with similar problems in the Balkans and various countries of Africa that continue to suffer the legacy of their imperialist past.—Peter J. Potichnyj, Slavic Review

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
