Description - The Fence of Metternich's Garden - Ukrainian Essays on Europe, Ukraine, and Europeanization by Mykola Riabchuk

This collection of essays reflects the personal experience of a Ukrainian intellectual engaged, since his Soviet-time youth, in a painstaking but fascinating process of the both cultural and political Europeanization of his country. The title refers, ironically, to the notorious Chancellor Metternichs quip that Asia presumably begins at the eastern fence of his garden (or, as another apocryphal version maintains, at the eastern end of the Viennese Landstrasse). This is a story of both exclusion and inclusion, of walls and fences, but also of a longing for freedom and a quest for solidarity. It is a book on different ways of being a European -- at both the collective and individual level -- despite various challenges or, perhaps, thanks to them.
