About The Book

Volume 4 of Volodymyr Vynnychenko's diary is an excellent primary source for the study of the life and thought of this major Ukrainian writer and political figure as well as of the cultural climate of Eastern and Western Europe from 1929 to 1931. Living in exile in France, Vynnychenko recorded his interaction with West European cultural figures, as well as his relations with the Ukrainian intelligentsia and emigre politicians. This volume contains many of his theories and musings on political, cultural, and philosophical issues. In particular, Vynnychenko comments extensively on the growing Stalinist repressions in the Ukrainian SSR and on the global economic crisis.

Also available from CIUS Press: volumes 1 (1911-20); 2 (1921-25); and 3 (1926-28).

Co-published with the Smoloskyp Publishers, the Institute of Literature of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and the Ukrainian Academy of Arts and Sciences in the U.S.A. Edited by Hryhorii Kostiuk. Compiled and with the annotations by Alexander Motyl.
