In 1988, the first edition of Orest Subtelny's Ukraine was published to international acclaim, as the definitive history of what was at that time a republic in the USSR. In the years since, the world has seen the dismantling of the Soviet bloc and the restoration of Ukraine's independence - an event celebrated by Ukrainians around the world but which also heralded a time of tumultuous change for those in the homeland.

While previous updates brought readers up to the year 2000, this new fourth edition includes an overview of Ukraine's most recent history, focusing on the dramatic political, socio-economic, and cultural changes that occurred during the Kuchma and Yushchenko presidencies. It analyzes political developments - particularly the so-called Orange Revolution - and the institutional growth of the new state. Subtelny examines Ukraine's entry into the era of globalization, looking at social and economic transformations, regional, ideological, and linguistic tensions, and describes the myriad challenges currently facing Ukrainian state and society.

Dr.N. Sudzilovsky-Russel, (Belarusian: Мікалай Судзілоўскі, Mikałaj Sudziłoŭski also known as Nicholas Russel, December 15, 1850 - April 30, 1930). He was a revolutionary and scientist. Sudzilovsky was born in Mogilev to a noble family. He entered the St. Petersburg University law department but dropped out on the next year and entered medical department of the Kiev University where he did not finish his studies. He began to get involved in political activity being one of the organisers of the Kiev commune, a left-wing student organisation in 1873-1874. Getting a job of medical assistant at the Nikolayev prison, he tried to arrange mass escape of the prisoners, but his plot failed and he had to flee from Russia escaping arrest in 1875. In 1876 under the pseudonym Nicholas Russel, Sudzilovsky took part in the Bulgarian April Uprising against the Ottoman Empire. In 1877 he graduated from medical department of Bucharest university. Russel was one of the organisers of the socialist movement in Romania, published a socialist paper, and carried out socialist propaganda among the Russian troops during the Russo-Turkish war. Romanian authorities expelled him from the country. In 1887, Sudzilovsky moved to San Francisco and later Hawaii, becoming an American citizen. There he became a founder of the Hawaii Homerule Party in 1892 which opposed Hawaii's joining the USA. In 1900 under the name Kauka Lukini, Sudzilovsky was elected Hawaii Senate President. During the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905 Sudzilovsky actively conducted socialist propaganda among Russian prisoners of war. Following the demands of Russia's foreign minister, the US government revoked his citizenship. Sudzilovsky spent the last years of his life in the Philippines and China. He was author of several works on medicine and sociology and was member of the American Genetics Society.)
