Most information is dated prior to publication. Since this category is mostly for a person unfamiliar with a destination the size of the book can be a consideration. The culture is in transition and yet is over 1,000 years. My reading objective was to gain some familiarity with Ukraine. If the objective was assisting in deciding to travel to, or to select an alternative destination the book would be
helpful. It would probably be a starting point in information to be supplemented with more up to date and specific information.
Being a small book that might assist on location I would take the book with me.
