Kyiv, Ukraine: The City of Domes and Demons from the Collapse of Socialism to the Mass Uprising of 2013-2014
Guest Speaker: Dr. Roman Cybriwsky
Kyiv, the historical capital of Ukraine and the scene of much recent turmoil, tragedy and promise, is the subject of a new book by Dr. Roman Cybriwsky.
In his presentation, accompanied by slides, Dr. Cybriwsky will share his intimate knowledge of a city he has come to love and discuss how corruption and mismanagement helped create the massive revolt that brought down the corrupt Yanukovych government. An anthropological, historical and sociological study of Kyiv and its residents, the book has been widely praised for its scholarship and insight.
