About CEU Press

CEU Press was established in 1993, following the founding of Central European University by Hungarian-American philanthropist George Soros.

Reflecting the intellectual strengths and values of its parent institution, the press publishes books on history, political science and the practices of open society, as well as legal studies, nationalism, human rights, conflict resolution, sociology, economics, medieval studies, literature, and international relations.

CEU Press focuses on Central and Eastern Europe, its history, politics, culture and economy from the Baltics to the Balkans, and from the Iron Curtain to the former Soviet Union. Reflecting the diverse and rich history of that region, we particularly welcome proposals from scholars of communism and post-communism, Slavic studies, Russian and Eurasian studies, and Jewish studies. The Press has also expanded its scope over the past few years, publishing books on higher education policy, gender studies, Roma studies and religious studies.

The Press is always responsive to authors seeking to publish high-quality scholarly manuscripts, but also commissions individual books and book series. This includes research monographs and other specialist texts, the publication of archival material, teaching material, and also books of high quality aimed at a more general, non-academic audience (in common with other university presses).

We operate by standards common to university presses, including peer review and editorial committee approval. Our books are produced regionally and sold internationally (distributed in the US by Johns Hopkins University Press).
