About The Book
Published by the CIUS Press in association with the Shevchenko Scientific Society of Canada, Ukrainians in Argentina, 1897–1950: The Making of a Community recounts the immigrant contribution to Ukrainian cultural, political, religious, and other organizations in Argentina. The book is based on research conducted in the archives of both Ukraine and Argentina and draws from the immigrant press. The chapters are divided chronologically, the first dealing with the initial, pre-1914, wave of Ukrainian settlement and the last with the third wave that came after World War II. Two middle chapters are case studies of two organizations founded in the interwar period. The author’s examination of the ties developed with Ukrainians in other countries also provides insights into the nature and activity of organizations created in neighbouring Paraguay and Uruguay.
