The Tragedy of Ukraine challenges the conventional view that the conflict in Ukraine is primarily an interstate conflict, and highlights its deep domestic roots. For all parties within Ukraine and beyond to move from confrontation to dialogue will require untangling these roots and embracing a change of heart, or catharsis. To assist in this endeavor, this book employs the lens of classical Greek tragedy, which once performed a similar therapeutic function in Athenian society.
