The Oxford-based Central and East European Publishing Project was a remarkable initiative to support embattled Central and East European publishers and journals, and to punch holes through the cultural iron curtain by encouraging translations and a 'common market of the mind' between East and West.  The nine years of its existence straddle the largest watershed in European history since 1945, and the Project's history – told here by some of its leading participants – illuminates the nature of the recent changes in Central and Eastern Europe.
