"[The book] includes everyone from internationally renowned academics like Harvard’s Serhii Plokhiy to never-before-translated poets, that seek to articulate Ukraine to the wider world. [… It] gives Ukrainians a chance to explain their country themselves, and the Ukraine that emerges is uncannily relevant at a time when so many countries are undergoing identity crises—not least the United States."—Peter Pomerantsev, journalist, author, and TV producer, in The American Interest (January 2020)
