THE PEOPLE FROM NOWHERE: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF CARPATHO-RUSYNS

Paul Robert Magocsi. The People From Nowhere: An Illustrated History of Carpatho-Rusyns. Uzhhorod: V. Padiak Publishers, 2006, 120 pages. Maps. Illustrations. $24.50, cloth.

A new book by the well-known scholar and founder of Carpatho-Rusyn Studies, Professor Paul Robert Magocsi of the University of Toronto, is a short popular survey of the history and culture of Rusyns worldwide. The title was inspired by the now proverbial phrase, "I am from nowhere," coined by the famous American artist of Carpatho-Rusyn background Andy Warhol. Printed on glossy paper, with 6 maps and 184 historic and contemporary illustrations in color and black-and-white (many of which are reproduced here for the first time) present an excellent introduction to the people who do come from somewhere very real - Carpathian Rus'. The reader can easily discover that this mysterious land has its own rich centuries-long history and distinct culture.

The book is available for $24.50 postpaid (check or money order) from the Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center, 1026 Vermont Avenue, Glassport PA 15045-1737 USA.
