The committee has selected Megan Buskey’s Ukraine Is Not Yet Dead for the 2024 AAUS Book Prize. This moving, courageous work about the Ukrainian experience of totalitarian occupation and its aftermath is based on careful academic research, done in consultation with prominent scholars of Ukraine’s twentieth-century history. It seamlessly weaves together intimate family testimony with archival materials, key secondary sources, and diaspora accounts. Buskey offers us a narrative that is at once poignant and gripping, emplotting crucial questions about the extraordinary choices faced by ordinary people under Soviet and Nazi occupation in personal and relatable ways. What emerges is an unforgettable meditation on intergenerational trauma and survival that is uniquely alive to Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine today.
