Mykhailo Hrushevsky’s 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.

Volume 1 was translated by Marta Skorupsky. The volume was prepared for publication by two staff editors—editor in chief Frank Sysyn, who was involved in all aspects of the volume, and HTP managing editor Uliana M. Pasicznyk, who edited the translation for content and style—and one consulting editor, Andrzej Poppe. The introduction to the English edition of the History of Ukraine-Rus′ was provided by Professor Sysyn, while Professor Poppe wrote the introduction to volume 1. This volume also features a complete bibliography, including editorial updates, as well as two maps.

The preparation of volume 3 was funded by generous donations from Petro and Ivanna Stelmach. A Letter of Congratulations on the occasion of publishing this volume was written by Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien in 1998.
