A work of history and sociology with a focus on the development of Ukrainian society. Evhen Onats'kyi (1894-1979) was a Ukrainian scholar, writer, and political figure, who began his career as a delegate of the Ukrainian People's Republic at the Paris Peace Conference, and ended in in exile in Argentina. In the interim, he lived in Italy and was a strong supporter of Mussolini's fascist regime, before ending up in a German prison, first in Rome and later at Berlin. Presumably, he was a Ukrainian DP (stateless Displaced Person) following the war, and in 1947 was able to emigrate abroad.
