About The Book
The McMaster conference was the first major effort to address difficult problems of Ukrainian-Jewish relations in a broader academic context. The past quarter century has seen dramatic transformations in the geopolitics of both Ukraine and Israel, as well as an enormous expansion of research on Ukrainian-Jewish relations by scholars from many countries working in a variety of fields. Evidence of this expansion is contained in the select bibliography of book publications that has been added to this third edition. These new developments and research notwithstanding, the essays gathered in this book have retained their importance and relevance to contemporary readers, and some of them still represent the most authoritative discussions of their particular subjects.
