New book on Canada-Ukraine Relations

McGill-Queen’s University Press, Canada’s foremost academic publisher, recently released a new book by Prof. Bohdan Kordan, Director of the PCUH. The book titled Strategic Friends: Canada-Ukraine Relations from Independence to the Euromaidan examines the continuity and change in Canada’s foreign policy toward Ukraine from the late Soviet period to the Revolution of Dignity. A comparative-historical study that draws on government documents, newspaper accounts and archival sources, the work details and analyzes the Canada-Ukraine relationship across the Mulroney, Chretien, Martin and Harper governments. Of particular interest is the Ukrainian-Canadian community’s role in strengthening the relationship.

The book is part of the PCUH’s Canada-Ukraine Relations Initiative, an ongoing project looking to document the evolving nature of the relationship. Strategic Friends can be purchased online or ordered through your local bookstore.
