About The Book

Published thanks to a research and publication grant from the Kowalsky Program for the Study of Eastern Ukraine at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, Hetman Ivan Mazepa is an invaluable collection of historical documents discovered in 2004 by Dr. Tatiana Tairova-Iakovleva in Saint Petersburg. These documents represent a portion of Hetman Ivan Mazepa's archive that was believed to have been destroyed during the sacking of Baturyn by the Muscovite army in 1708. This book contains unique documentary materials dating from the period of 1687-1705, primarily those captured in 1708 by Prince Aleksandr Menshikov. Besides the documents that shed light on Mazepa's domestic policies, it also features hetman's extensive diplomatic correspondence, his poetry and a letter written by his mother. Complete with indexes, glossary, chronological table and a concise biography of Hetman Ivan Mazepa, this Russian-language volume is not only an invaluable source of information for those interested in Ukrainian history, but it is also one of the first attempts to present an objective portrayal of the Ukrainian hetman among scholars and readers in Russia.The Kowalsky Program continues to support this joint project with Saint Petersburg University and anticipates the publication of further volumes.
