WEST, First edition
Ukraine between East and West (first edition)
The scholarship and new instructional methods of the Polish Jesuits and the assimilative pressure of the Polish church and state compelled the Ukrainian elite not only to rise in defense of its ancestral faith but also to reshape its traditional culture with the aid of Western innovations. The intellectual ferment of the era is captured in essays on the defense of the Orthodox faith and the religious polemical literature. The essay on Metropolitan Peter Mohyla examines the complex cultural world of this important churchman.
Concluding the work is a consideration of the way in which Byzantine and Western influences combined with the Kyivan legacy to produce a distinctive Ukrainian identity. Sevcenko's essays, in which a wealth of detail is given coherence by an acute, richly informed analytical perspective, will reward not only students of Byzantine and East European history but all readers interested in problems of cultural formation and development.
Five essays are published here for the first time, while the other seven have been extensively revised and augmented. Bibliographic notes are appended to each essay, and the volume is enhanced with 21 pages of fifteen chronological tables and four excellent fold-out maps.

The second variety also states "First Printing" on the copyright page and no mention of the printing press, but it says "Printed" rather than "Manufactured" in the United States of America, and the boards are different. It has light gray boards with a blue cloth spine, and "RD 7 W" is printed on the gutter of the last page near the spine.
