Title of Research: 

"Between Revolution and Reaction: The History of Skoropadsky's Ukraine"

Abstract: 

This history of the Ukrainian Hetmanate under Pavlo Skoropadsky in 1918—the first English-language monograph of its kind—will depart from the conventional view that reduces the state to a mere wartime creation of Germany. Instead, it aims to show the hetmanate in the light of subsequent developments, namely as one of the prefiguations of the anti-Bolshevik far-right regimes which appeared in interwar Europe. Thus, the work would represent an exploration of the nearly successful "counterrevolutionary revolution" by arguing for its oft-neglected "Russian" parentage.
