In stock (can be backordered)


This three-volume (in four books) edition (compiled and edited by Miroslaw Czech and Ola Hnatiuk) of selected works of a prominent, but largely forgotten Ukrainian sociologist of Polish descent, Olgerd Ippolit Bochkovsky, represents one of the major discoveries in the field of Ukrainian sociology in recent decades. Born in the Kherson region in southern Ukraine, Bochkovsky emigrated to Prague in 1905 and during 1917-20 served as a member of the Ukrainian diplomatic mission in Czechoslovakia. He lectured at the Ukrainian Free University in Prague and the Ukrainian Husbandry Academy in Poděbrady. In 1933 he headed the so-called Famine Committee, which aided victims of the Famine-Genocide of 1932–3 in Ukraine, and wrote an ‘Open Letter’ on 5 September 1933 to the former French premier, E. Herriot, who denied that there was famine in Ukraine.

As sociologist Bochkovsky specialized in the study of nationalism and the processes of nation-building. Volume 2 of this edition of his selected works includes his longer studies, such as Borot’ba narodiv za natsional’ne vyzvolennia (Nations’ Struggle for National Liberation, 1932), and Vstup do natsiolohiï (Introduction to ‘Nationology,’ 1934), in which Bochkovsky presents his theories of modern nation-building.

This edition was published with the support of the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Modern Ukrainian History and Society at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies.
