CEU Press Perspectives

ISSN 3004-1430

How did we get to the precarious state that we find ourselves in? What new thinking is needed to solve the big problems of the day? Characterized by our commitment to democracy, freedom and open society, and to mark our 30th anniversary year, we are announcing a major new series of short books on the big ideas which shape our world today.

Publishing in paperback, these are accessibly written concise works, offering new angles and perspectives on some of the biggest challenges facing our world. Books in the series examine topics and themes including extremism, populism and censorship; technology, politics and society; geopolitics; global history and decolonialization; climate, population, food, energy; family, sex, and identity.

What will make a CEU Press Perspectives title?
