Second edtion, originally published in 1917 in Vienna by the Union for the Liberation of Ukraine. Based on his earlier folkloristic research on historical Ukrainian songs, especially his 1907 work on Cossack folk songs, the author sought to document Muscovy's detrimental impact on various aspects of historical Ukraine, such as the Cossacks and the Hetmanate (1648–1764). The long essay relies on an abundant wealth of historical songs, which are cited throughout. He completed the work after fleeing L'viv for Vienna in 1914, after its occupation by Russian troops.
