A Biography of No Place: FromEthnic Borderland to SovietHeartland by Kate Brown
 
This is a biography of a borderland between Russia and Poland, a regionwhere, in 1925, people identified as Poles, Germans, Jews, Ukrainians,and Russians lived side by side. Over the next three decades, this mosaicof cultures was modernized and homogenized out of existence by theruling might of the Soviet Union, then Nazi Germany, and finally, Polishand Ukrainian nationalism. By the 1950s, this no place emerged as aUkrainian heartland, and the fertile mix of peoples that defined the regionwas destroyed.Browns study is grounded in the life of the village and shtetl, in thepersonalities and small histories of everyday life in this area. In impressivedetail, she documents how these regimes, bureaucratically and thenviolently, separated, named, and regimented this intricate community intodistinct ethnic groups.
