Summary/Abstract: MYKHAYLO DRAHOMANOV. A Symposium and Selected Writings. Published in 1922 by the THE UKRAINIAN ACADEMY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES IN THE U. S. as an issue of the "ANNALS OF THE UKRAINIAN ACADEMY" // Compiled with the assistance of the Drahomanov Commission of the Ukrainian Academy of Arts and Sciences in the U. S. under the chairmanship of Professor Svitozor Drahomanov. Edited by Ivan L. Rudnytsky. // The problems which Drahomanov faced in his own day still await solution today. Perhaps a constructive approach may be gained through the study of a man who, like many Ukrainian scholars today, had to leave his native Ukraine and yet came to see more clearly her place in Europe. “Emigration,” Drahomanov wrote, “is bitter, but under certain circumstances, inevitable. Beginning with the sixteenth century the freedom of England, Scotland, then of France, Germany, Italy, and Hungary could not do without emigration and its literature. The freedom of the Ukraine also demands it” (Letters to the Dnieper Ukraine). // The present volume which is published as a special issue of the Annals presents a symposium of studies devoted to Mykhaylo Drahomanov and a selection from his own works. It is intended to acquaint the English speaking world and in particular American and English students of East European history with the life and work of Drahomanov.
