Galician Realities

Many if not most Ukrainian Catholics who came to North America, and many who came out of the Ukrainian Catholic Church to found the OCA and ACROD, were immigrants from the Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia. Galicia has increasingly come in for scholarly study lately. E.g., in December 2005, Christopher Hann and Paul Robert Magocsi edited a wonderful book, Galicia: A Multicultured Land. This was reviewed in Logos in 2007.

Now today I have received a new book by Larry Wolff, a professor of history at New York University: The Idea of Galicia: History and Fantasy in Habsburg Political Culture (Stanford U Press, 2010, xi+486pp.
