About The Book
Published by the Lviv Institute of Archeography and Source Studies at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Peter Jacyk Centre for Ukrainian Historical Research at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, this book is a comprehensive index of toponyms and ethnonyms appearing in the 10-volume (in 11 books) Ukrainian-language edition of Mykhailo Hrushevsky’s Istoriia Ukraїny-Rusy (History of Ukraine-Rus') (as printed in New York by Knyho-Spilka between 1954 and 1958 and reprinted in Kyiv in the early 1990s). This meticulously compiled index lists all text references found in all 10 volumes of Istoriia to countries, regions, cities, towns, and settlements; seas, rivers, lakes, mountains, lowlands, and other geographic regions; city districts, streets, churches, landmarks, and kurhans; as well as tribes, peoples, ethnic groups, and inhabitants of particular cities and settlements. It is an invaluable addition to the 10-volume Ukrainian-language edition of Hrushevsky’s opus magnum.
The index was compiled by I. Skochylias and N. Halak under the editorship of the late Professor Iaroslav Dashkevych. The book was published with the financial support of the Theodore and Magdalena Butrey Fund at the Petro Jacyk Educational Foundation, Toronto, Canada.
