The Russian-Ukrainian War has dominated world headlines for the last few weeks. If you are interested in the background of this conflict, the Dillsburg Area Public Library has resources to help! We currently have the following titles (with a couple more on order):
- The Gates of Europe: A History of Ukraine by Serhii Polkhy
- Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin by Fiona Hill and Clifford Gaddy
- The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin by Masha Gessen
- Midnight in Chernobyl by Adam Higginbotham
- The Future is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia by Masha Gessen
- Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine by Anne Applebaum
You can access several local, national, and international newspapers via Newsbank and other databases available through York County Libraries and POWER Library.
Several organizations have also published reading lists on the conflict:
- New York Public Library
- National Public Radio (NPR)
- New York Times
- Booklist (via American Libraries Magazine)
If any titles on this list are of interest and aren’t available at Dillsburg, they may be available through other libraries in our system or via interlibrary loan.
