Volume 37, Numbers 3–4
This issue contains articles on American perceptions of the entrenchment of Stalinism in Ukraine in the 1930s and on present-day questions that include post-Maidan revamping of law enforcement and language law.
Ray Gamache reexamines the discursive chain connecting FDR’s recognition of the Soviet Union with the Holodomor. Nick Kupensky writes about Margaret Burke-White, the first American artist to gain access to large-scale construction sites such as Dniprohes at the time of the First Five-Year Plan. Basing himself on five case studies, Nicholas Pehlman provides an in-depth overview of the political competition for control over law enforcement that accompanied Ukraine’s most recent reforms in that sector. Lada Kolomiyets investigates the semantic shifts that occur in translations of official documents, such as the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, and their impact on the war in Donbas.
The issue concludes with a large section of book reviews.
