What to read about the Ukraine crisis? 30 articles for your consideration
As I was thinking about the cacophony of information about the crisis in Ukraine, I mused about the fact that I haven’t seen a book-length treatment to suggest to you.
However, there have been a number of interesting articles, and I’ve assembled a rather subjective list of them. This is not a comprehensive collection addressing every aspect of this complicated war, and I don’t necessarily agree with everything in them, but I do think they raise important issues.
Most are fairly brief, but collectively I think they amount to a short ‘book’ of sorts. Anyway, here for your consideration (arranged chronologically):
