    Without knowledge of the influences that have shaped Eastern Europe, one cannot understand the Ukrainian crisis.

    Today's conflict in Ukraine is only the latest episode in a long history of feuds over the country's territory and its existence as a sovereign nation. Without knowledge of the complex influences that have shaped Eastern Europe, one cannot possibly understand the crisis in Kiev. Perhaps the most remarkable book to turn to is The Gates of Europe: A History of Ukraine by Serhii Plokhy.
