CEU Press Classics

Publishing CEU Press Classics started with the series of Central European Classics. Timothy Garton Ash, founding general editor of the series, began to note down titles recommended to him by local writers in dim cafés in Prague and Budapest in the early 1990s. His aim, to take these works of nineteenth- and early twentieth century classic fiction 'out of the ghetto,' onto the shelves of Western booksellers, and into the consciousness of Western readers has been successfully achieved.

The success of the seven books between 1993-2001 prompted the Central European University Press to bring out further classics from eastern and central Europe from 2007 onwards in the CEU Press Classics series.
