'An indispensable guide to the tragic history of a great European nation' (David Blair Sunday Telegraph)
Located at the western edge of the Eurasian steppe, Ukraine has long been the meeting place of empires - Roman to Ottoman, Habsburg to Russian - and they all left their imprint on the landscape, the language and the people living within these shifting borders. In this authoritative book, Harvard Professor Serhii Plokhy traces the history of Ukraine from the arrival of the Vikings in the tenth century to the current Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. Fascinating and multilayered, The Gates of Europe is the essential guide to understanding not just Ukraine's past but also its future.

Notă biografică

Serhii Plokhy is the Mykhailo Hrushevsky Professor of Ukrainian History at Harvard University and a leading authority on Eastern Europe. His previous books include The Gates of Europe, The Last Empire and Yalta: The Price of Peace.


Clear and elegant... an indispensable guide to the tragic history of a great European nation
A fast-moving history, full of prompts and nuggets... a strong rebuttal of the arrogant assumptions of the Putin court that Ukraine, though intrinsically part of the greater Russian nation, is culturally inferior, weaker and compromised
Admirable... In his elegant and careful exposition of Ukraine's past, Mr Plokhy has also provided some signposts to the future
An assured and authoritative survey that spans ancient Greek times to the present day
Plokhy's careful, engaging history is a series of stories about a spectral nation, one that has appeared and disappeared down the ages... If sense ever prevails, Plokhy's fine book should find its way to Vladimir Putin's desk, if only to show the imperialist that Ukraine itself is far from done, and will not be extinguished
