Western Ukraine in Conflict with Poland and Bolshevism, 1918–1920
$39.95 – $64.00
Vasyl Kuchabsky’s Western Ukraine in Conflict with Poland and Bolshevism, 1918–1923 is devoted to one of the most complex periods of twentieth-century history, when the defeat of the Central Powers in the First World War and the collapse of the Russian Empire made it possible for the “non-historical nations” of Central and Eastern Europe to undertake the creation of independent states.
Kuchabsky, whom the renowned specialist on modern Ukraine Ivan Lysiak-Rudnytsky considered “the most interesting historian of the Ukrainian revolution,” wrote the most comprehensive account of the political, military, and diplomatic aspects of the Western Ukrainian struggle for independence. The central issues in his study are Ukrainian-Polish relations and the Ukrainian-Polish War of 1918–19. Kuchabsky also examines state-building in the Western Ukrainian People’s Republic (ZUNR) and, to some extent, in the Ukrainian People’s Republic (UNR), as well as relations between the two republics, within the broader context of European politics, the Paris Peace Conference, the interests of the Allied powers, and the Russian attitude toward Ukrainian independence.
