Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up-The history of Ukrainian immigrants in America is woven into an account of the history of the people and their struggles to preserve a sense of their own identity for many centuries while under foreign domination. Kuropas carefully delineates the effects on their culture and religion under Polish, Lithuanian, Austro-Hungarian, Hungarian, and Russian rule. However, in his attempt to be fair to all in his discussion of religion, he is probably belaboring the topic for most readers. Of more relevance to a general audience is his account of the ways in which Ukrainian communities organized themselves in the U.S. and took part in the labor movement. This book is better than the 1972 edition; not only does it update the history of Ukraine through its independence in 1991, but it also has a more attractive format. It has been reorganized and rewritten considerably. Still, the text is a bit dry. Photographs are sharper than in the earlier edition, but all are still black and white. However, new full-color jacket art gives more than a hint at the glorious colors of Ukrainian embroidery and Easter eggs. A useful source for reports.

In my review of the 1973 edition of The Ukrainians in America, I wrote, in part, that sometimes good things do, indeed, come in small packages, and that to that list, The Ukrainians in America by Myron B. Kuropas, Ph.D., should be added. This 1996 revised edition, named Ukrainians in America is another gem that should be added to your list of `good things that come in small packages.' Revised and expanded with additional text and photos, this 1996 revised edition supplements very nicely the 1972 edition.

One change that you'll immediately notice is that the title has omitted the initial word "the." The new title will probably facilitate locating the book. This isn't the only change, however. Though many of the original photos are reproduced, sometimes, they are rearranged, and their sizes are enlarged. Among the new photos is one of U. S. President Bill Clinton with Ukraine's second president, Leonid Kuchma, "on the south lawn of the White House during a formal welcoming ceremony in November, 1994."

New information is a welcome addition, also. For the serious student of Ukrainian immigration to the United States, this book is an excellent starting point. Ukrainians in America covers a broad spectrum of topics, including organizations and associations.

The front cover of Ukrainians in America shows Daria Lysyj, owner of International Gallery and Gifts, with her granddaughter, Aleksandra Daria Rieland, in her Minneapolis, Minnesota shop in June, 1994. The back cover depicts the world-renowned Ukrainian pysanky (Easter eggs).

Maps, illustrations, tables, and black and white archival photos enhance the 80 pages of informational/educational text.

That sometimes good things do, indeed, come in small packages is a truism that everyone has probably personally experienced. For example, that jewelry ring or those car keys to a smart sports car exemplify the proverb precisely, but do be sure to add to that list The Ukrainians in America by Myron B. Kuropas, Ph.D.--for, it's a classic still sure to be found in Ukrainian bookstores, and a welcome addition gracing many library bookshelves, both private and public--if it's not on your shelves, it's not too late to begin enjoying an introduction to the Ukrainian immigrants in America and their contributions to American life.

Published by Lerner Publications Company as part of its IN AMERICA series, the first edition came out in 1972, joining twenty-six other titles, and explores the history of Ukrainian immigration to the United States, while introducing the people who helped make America the diverse, strong nation that she is.

Don't let the date of publication prevent you from enjoying the educational material to be found within its covers--this book is brimming with information that you may not find in other sources ("Taras Shevchenko and Ira Aldridge became friends when Aldridge visited St. Petersburg as part of a Shakespearean troupe.")--and, albeit the series is recommended for "curricular study of immigration in upper elementary, middle and junior high school," the general public will find it interesting for its inclusion of background material on Ukrainian history, culture, and religion. That the reading level is young adult (age group 6 and above) should be no hindrance, either; adults will also benefit from reading this book.

The cover of The Ukrainians in America is a collage of some of the photos and topics mentioned when you open this reference source.

If you wanted to know a little more about Ukrainian Heritage this is an informative short book.
It is written like a long encyclopedia article and contains pictures. It's a perfect reference for a child doing a research report.
