Putin's War Against Ukraine: Revolution, Nationalism, and Crime
Putin's War Against Ukraine: Revolution, Nationalism, and Crime
The West has woken up to the uncomfortable fact that Russia has long believed it is at war with them, the most egregious example of which is Vladimir Putin’s hacking of the US elections. For Western governments, used to believing in the post-Cold War peace dividend, it came as a shock to find the liberal international order is under threat from an aggressive Russia. The ‘End of History – loudly proclaimed in 1991 – has been replaced by the ‘Return of History.’ Putin’s War Against Ukraine came three years earlier when he launched an unprovoked war in the Donbas and annexed the Crimea. Putin’s war against Ukraine has killed over 30, 000 civilians, Ukrainian and Russian soldiers and Russian proxies, forced a third of the population of the Donbas to flee, illegally nationalised Ukrainian state and private entities in the Crimea and the Donbas, destroyed huge areas of the infrastructure and economy of the Donbas, and created a black hole of crime and soft security threats to Europe. Putin's War Against Ukraine is the first book to focus on national identity as the root of the crisis through Russia's long-term refusal to view Ukrainians as a separate people and an unwillingness to recognise the sovereignty and borders of independent Ukraine. Written by Taras Kuzio, a leading authority on contemporary Ukraine, the book is a product of extensive fieldwork in Russian speaking eastern and southern Ukraine and the front lines of the Donbas combat zone. Putin’s War Against Ukraine debunks myths surrounding the conflict and provides an incisive analysis for scholars, policy makers, and journalists as to why Vladimir Putin is at war with the West and Ukraine.

*If you would like to receive the first chapter of the book you can go to our author page and join our mailing list and receive it before anyone else. www.author-james-rosone.com Resources, money, miscommunication…these are the things that start wars. “Battlefield Ukraine” explores a potential war between NATO and Russia over the fate of separatist regions in east Ukraine. While President Petrov draws his line in the sand, a new American administration is sworn in. The Russians launch a massive disinformation campaign to taint the US election and distract America as they begin to move their forces to the Ukrainian border. When Russia implements a no-fly zone over eastern Ukraine to prevent the US-backed Ukrainian government from putting down a civil war, things begin to escalate out of control. American and NATO aircraft attempt to call Petrov’s bluff and fly over the no-fly zone, but they are ambushed by an overwhelming show of force. In response to this aggression, the US sends additional military units to Europe. President Petrov issues an ultimatum--the US and NATO must withdraw from Ukraine or be forcibly removed. Will the new American President back down, or will the world creep one step closer towards war? Find out in this first book of the new Red Storm Rising Series.

Red Famine: Stalin's War on Ukraine
Red Famine: Stalin's War on Ukraine
AN ECONOMIST BEST BOOK OF THE YEARFrom the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Gulag and the National Book Award finalist Iron Curtain, a revelatory history of one of Stalin's greatest crimes—the consequences of which still resonate todayIn 1929 Stalin launched his policy of agricultural collectivization—in effect a second Russian revolution—which forced millions of peasants off their land and onto collective farms. The result was a catastrophic famine, the most lethal in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR. But instead of sending relief the Soviet state made use of the catastrophe to rid itself of a political problem. In Red Famine, Anne Applebaum argues that more than three million of those dead were Ukrainians who perished not because they were accidental victims of a bad policy but because the state deliberately set out to kill them.Applebaum proves what has long been suspected: after a series of rebellions unsettled the province, Stalin set out to destroy the Ukrainian peasantry. The state sealed the republic’s borders and seized all available food. Starvation set in rapidly, and people ate anything: grass, tree bark, dogs, corpses. In some cases, they killed one another for food. Devastating and definitive, Red Famine captures the horror of ordinary people struggling to survive extraordinary evil.Today, Russia, the successor to the Soviet Union, has placed Ukrainian independence in its sights once more. Applebaum’s compulsively readable narrative recalls one of the worst crimes of the twentieth century, and shows how it may foreshadow a new threat to the political order in the twenty-first.

Total Wars and the Making of Modern Ukraine, 1914-1954
Total Wars and the Making of Modern Ukraine, 1914-1954
Between 1914 and 1954, the Ukrainian-speaking territories in East Central Europe suffered almost 15 million “excess deaths” as well as numerous large-scale evacuations and forced population transfers. These losses were the devastating consequences of the two world wars, revolutions, famines, genocidal campaigns, and purges that wracked Europe in the first half of the twentieth century and spread new ideas, created new political and economic systems, and crafted new identities.In Total Wars and the Making of Modern Ukraine, 1914–1954, George O. Liber argues that the continuous violence of the world wars and interwar years transformed the Ukrainian-speaking population of East Central Europe into self-conscious Ukrainians. Wars, mass killings, and forced modernization drives made and re-made Ukraine’s boundaries, institutionalized its national identities, and pruned its population according to various state-sponsored political, racial, and social ideologies. In short, the two world wars, the Holodomor, and the Holocaust played critical roles in forming today’s Ukraine.A landmark study of the terrifying scope and paradoxical consequences of mass violence in Europe’s bloodlands, Liber’s book will transform our understanding of the entangled histories of Ukraine, the USSR, Germany, and East Central Europe in the twentieth century.

In Wartime: Stories from Ukraine
In Wartime: Stories from Ukraine
From one of the finest journalists of our time comes a definitive, boots-on-the-ground dispatch from the front lines of the conflict in Ukraine.   Ever since Ukraine’s violent 2014 revolution, followed by Russia’s annexation of Crimea, the country has been at war. Misinformation reigns, more than two million people have been displaced, and Ukrainians fight one another on a second front—the crucial war against corruption.With In Wartime, Tim Judah lays bare the events that have turned neighbors against one another and mired Europe’s second-largest country in a conflict seemingly without end.In Lviv, Ukraine’s western cultural capital, mothers tend the graves of sons killed on the other side of the country. On the Maidan, the square where the protests that deposed President Yanukovych began, pamphleteers, recruiters, buskers, and mascots compete for attention. In Donetsk, civilians who cheered Russia’s President Putin find their hopes crushed as they realize they have been trapped in the twilight zone of a frozen conflict. Judah talks to everyone from politicians to poets, pensioners, and historians. Listening to their clashing explanations, he interweaves their stories to create a sweeping, tragic portrait of a country fighting a war of independence from Russia—twenty-five years after the collapse of the USSR.

Conflict in Ukraine: The Unwinding of the Post--Cold War Order (Boston Review Originals)
Conflict in Ukraine: The Unwinding of the Post--Cold War Order (Boston Review Originals)
The crisis in Ukraine and its implications for both the Crimean peninsula and Russia's relations with the West.The current conflict in Ukraine has spawned the most serious crisis between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War. It has undermined European security, raised questions about NATO's future, and put an end to one of the most ambitious projects of U.S. foreign policy -- building a partnership with Russia. It also threatens to undermine U.S. diplomatic efforts on issues ranging from terrorism to nuclear proliferation. And in the absence of direct negotiations, each side is betting that political and economic pressure will force the other to blink first. Caught in this dangerous game of chicken, the West cannot afford to lose sight of the importance of stable relations with Russia.This book puts the conflict in historical perspective by examining the evolution of the crisis and assessing its implications both for the Crimean peninsula and for Russia's relations with the West more generally. Experts in the international relations of post-Soviet states, political scientists Rajan Menon and Eugene Rumer clearly show what is at stake in Ukraine, explaining the key economic, political, and security challenges and prospects for overcoming them. They also discuss historical precedents, sketch likely outcomes, and propose policies for safeguarding U.S.-Russia relations in the future. In doing so, they provide a comprehensive and accessible study of a conflict whose consequences will be felt for many years to come.

Borders, Bombs, and ... Two Right Shoes: World War II through the Eyes of a Ukrainian Child Refugee Survivor
Borders, Bombs, and ... Two Right Shoes: World War II through the Eyes of a Ukrainian Child Refugee Survivor
BORDERS, BOMBS, AND… TWO RIGHT SHOES. WWII through the Eyes of a Ukrainian Child Refugee Survivor The Author writes in the Introduction: “In my memoir, many brief scenes of the reality that I had to face during WWII demonstrate once again how some of our human species are capable of bringing utter devastation to others of our own kind. Still, at the same time, there are also examples proving that we can manage to survive even great adversities. Yet, in order to survive a life-threatening journey, it usually takes a helping hand from others, who thus prove their own humanity.” A CHILD’S JOURNEY THROUGH WWII WWII shaped the Author’s daily life from the age of 4 through 11. In 1939, a communist/Russian invasion of Western Ukraine took place, and with it not just the beginning of war, but the horrors it had brought to the family and friends, causing the death of her grandfather, a Ukrainian Greco-Catholic priest. In 1941, a day before a Nazi invasion, the Author witnessed charred bodies of victims of a Russian massacre of Ukrainian political prisoners in her city of Stryi. Soon, the Nazis replaced the communists: their ideology introduced ghettos for the Jewish population, threatening all others with the severest punishment for sheltering any Jews. The little girl and her mother took great risk when they agreed to help a Jewish girl, and later also sheltered a young Jewish woman. Many of the family’s friends acted similarly, providing shelter to Jewish neighbors and strangers, including important rabbis (such as The Great Rabbi Robeach of Belz, whom Raoul Wallenberg came to visit, while the Rabbi was in hiding). In 1944, the Soviets were again at the city’s doorstep, and for many Ukrainians that meant renewed arrests, executions, or exile to Siberia. The Author’s family became refugees, passing through Poland, Slovakia, Austria, and Germany, including a stay in a German internment camp, and later working on a farm and at a railroad yard. After the war ended, a new threat faced most the 2.5 to 3 million East European Ostarbeiter (slave workers) and refugees in Germany: Russia demanded that all the refugees whose country it invaded even for two years, were to be forcibly “repatriated”, although not to their own patria, but to the labor camps in Siberia. Finally, over 200,000 Ukrainian refugees found haven in Displaced Persons camps for various nationalities. During 1945-1948, these camps had a substitute town infrastructure, including schools, theaters, choirs, publications, and chapels for various denominations. They also provided training for new occupations in overseas countries that were ready to take in these refugees. As a child, the Author survived interrogations, three execution attempts, daily bombardments, and extensive nomadic wanderings, mostly in freight trains. Yet, her family survived, mostly by chance, and through the kindness of friends and several complete strangers. The Author provides other examples about WWII events experienced by her and some of her friends or acquaintances. In order to help the reader place the depicted events within a historical framework, the book includes historical maps and timelines of events that had influenced her life as well as that of her ancestors. There is also a timeline, illustrating how historical events kept being repeated and continued to affect her people throughout the 20th century. Another timeline refers to the family’s odyssey during WWII. Information is also included about the Author’s maternal ancestors, the Shankovskys, who represented 16 generations of Ukrainian Greco-Catholic priests. Many of the historical events affecting the Author’s family, took place in Ukraine for over a millennium, in the vicinity of the thousand year-old Svitovyd statue, on the banks of the Zbruch River. For centuries, this river served as the border between the East and the West. The books has 5 maps, 78 photos and documents, a glossary of terms, and an index of names.

The Return of the Cold War: Ukraine, The West and Russia (Routledge Contemporary Russia and Eastern Europe Series)
The Return of the Cold War: Ukraine, The West and Russia (Routledge Contemporary Russia and Eastern Europe Series)
This book examines the crisis in Ukraine, tracing its development and analysing the factors which lie behind it. It discusses above all how the two sides have engaged in political posturing, accusations, escalating sanctions and further escalating threats, arguing that the ease with which both sides have reverted to a Cold War mentality demonstrates that the Cold War belief systems never really disappeared, and that the hopes raised in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union for a new era in East-West relations were misplaced. The book pays special attention to the often ignored origins of the crisis within Ukraine itself, and the permanent damage caused by the fact that Ukrainians are killing Ukrainians in the eastern parts of the country. It also assesses why Cold War belief systems have re-emerged so easily, and concludes by considering the likely long-term ramifications of the crisis, arguing that the deep-rooted lack of trust makes the possibility of compromise even harder than in the original Cold War.

From Cold War to Hot Peace: An American Ambassador in Putin’s Russia
From Cold War to Hot Peace: An American Ambassador in Putin’s Russia
From one of America’s leading scholars of Russia who served as U.S. ambassador to Russia during the Obama administration, a revelatory, inside account of U.S.-Russia relations from 1989 to the presentIn 2008, when Michael McFaul was asked to leave his perch at Stanford and join an unlikely presidential campaign, he had no idea that he would find himself at the beating heart of one of today’s most contentious and consequential international relationships. As President Barack Obama’s adviser on Russian affairs, McFaul helped craft the United States’ policy known as “reset” that fostered new and unprecedented collaboration between the two countries. And then, as U.S. ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014, he had a front-row seat when this fleeting, hopeful moment crumbled with Vladimir Putin’s return to the presidency. This riveting inside account combines history and memoir to tell the full story of U.S.-Russia relations from the fall of the Soviet Union to the new rise of the hostile, paranoid Russian president. From the first days of McFaul’s ambassadorship, the Kremlin actively sought to discredit and undermine him, hassling him with tactics that included dispatching protesters to his front gates, slandering him on state media, and tightly surveilling him, his staff, and his family.From Cold War to Hot Peace is an essential account of the most consequential global confrontation of our time.

The Freedom Fighter: A memoir of a member of the Donbass Militia in the War in Ukraine
The Freedom Fighter is a first-hand account of the Donbass Uprising in 2014. Vitaly Fedorov was a managing partner in a small casino in West Africa. Then the people of Donbass rebelled against the authority of an unconstitutionally installed Kiev government, which was trying to take away their land for large gas shale companies and to prohibit them to teach their children their native language. Being a man of conservative-libertarian views, Vitaly has left behind his well-organized life, travelled to Ukraine, joined the people’s militia and fought against government troops, participating in the defense of "Russian Alamo" - Slavyansk.In this book, you won’t find knights in shining armor, but simply good people who rebelled against an oppressive regime, for the right to live on their land as they wish. There are a lot of good books about a successful uprising of common people against an oppressive government. This one is no different from the others, except that this one is real.
