About the History of Ukraine-Rus' The History of Ukraine-Rus' is the most comprehensive account of the ancient, medieval, and early modern history of the Ukrainian people. Written by Ukraine's greatest historian, Mykhailo Hrushevsky, the ten-volume History remains unsurpassed in its use of sources and literature. The English-language edition makes the national history of Europe's largest new state available to the English reader for the first time. At the launch of Volume 1, the late Professor Thomas Noonan of the University of Minnesota referred to the Hrushevsky Translation Project as "one of North America's most important and ambitious publishing projects in East Slavic history." The English-language volumes include extensive introductions by prominent scholars, complete bibliographies of Hrushevsky's sources, and updates of subsequent literature. Volumes 1, 7, and 8 were published in 1997, 1999, and 2002 respectively, and have gained international scholarly recognition. About the Hrushevsky Translation Project The Hrushevsky Translation Project produces the English edition of the History of Ukraine-Rus'. The Project is based at the Jacyk Centre's offices at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Alberta and the University of Toronto. In addition to the Centre's resources, the Project is financed by grants, sponsorships of individual volumes, and contributions from the Ukrainian community. In addition to the Hrushevsky Translation Project, the Centre sponsors a monograph series and a series of translations into Ukrainian of major Western historical works on Ukraine. It funds archival research and publications and provides grants and fellowships to scholars of Ukrainian history.
