About this audiobook

The book is a collection of texts by contemporary Ukrainian intellectuals: writers, historians, philosophers, political analysts, opinion leaders. The texts have been written for an international audience. The collection combines reflections on Ukraine's history (or histories, in plural), and analysis of the present, conceptual ideas and life stories. The book presents a multi-faceted image of Ukrainian memory and reality: from the Holodomor to Maidan, from Russian aggression to cultural diversity, from the depth of the past to the complexity of the present. It was initially published by Internews Ukraine, one of the biggest Ukrainian media NGOs, under support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation. New introduction by the book's editor, Ukrainian philosopher Volodymyr Yermolenko, reflects the realities of Russia's total war against Ukraine launched in February 2022.
