Sinopsis: History of Ukraine-Rus', volume 1, From Prehistory to the Eleventh Century discusses the Ukrainian land and the people who inhabited it from the earliest times up to the formation of the Rus' state and its Christianization. Hrushevsky examines the emergence of Rus' civilization through the prisms of archaeology, anthropology, ethnography, and historical linguistics. He gives penetrating analyses of historical sources and pays special attention to the Primary Chronicle and the Normanist Controversy. The newly compiled bibliography of more than 1,700 items includes all manuscripts, published sources, and secondary works used by Hrushevsky.
Reseña del editor: The History of Ukraine-Rus' is the most comprehensive account of the ancient, medieval, and early modern history of the Ukrainian people. Written by Ukraine's greatest historian, Mykhailo Hrushevsky, the ten-volume History remains unsurpassed in its use of sources and literature. The English-language edition makes the national history of Europe's largest new state available to the English reader for the first time. At the launch of Volume 1, the late Professor Thomas Noonan of the University of Minnesota referred to the Hrushevsky Translation Project as "one of North America's most important and ambitious publishing projects in East Slavic history."
The English-language volumes include extensive introductions by prominent scholars, complete bibliographies of Hrushevsky's sources, and updates of subsequent literature. Volumes 1, 7, and 8 were published in 1997, 1999, and 2002 respectively, and have gained international scholarly recognition.
