Ukraine: A History is a 1988 book on the history of Ukraine written by Orest Subtelny, a professor of history and political science at York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is a comprehensive survey of the history of the geographical area encompassed by what is modern-day Ukraine.

The history of Ukraine is divided into five parts in the book and presented chronologically, beginning with an introductory chapter on the prehistory of Ukraine titled The Earliest Times, followed by Part One: Kievan Rus', Part Two: The Polish-Lithuanian Period, Part Three: The Cossack Era, Part Four: Ukraine under Imperial Rule, and Part Five: Twentieth-Century Ukraine.


The book has received positive reviews by the Journal of Ukrainian Studies, Canadian Book Review Annual, Midwest Book Review, and World Affairs Report.[1]
