Call for Book Manuscripts: ''Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics & Society''

Call for Book Manuscripts - "Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics & Society" (SPPS)

The trilingual scholarly "Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society" (SPPS) was launched in 2004 by Andreas Umland, and is published by ibidem Press. SPPS publishes new research on understudied aspects of the history of the former Soviet bloc and on the post-Soviet transitions. With more than 120 titles available in English, German, and Russian, SPPS is now a comprehensive resource and established publication series, on the recent past and current affairs of the post-Soviet states.

The series provides an outlet for empirical research on a broad variety of themes within the field of communist and post-communist studies. Among them are those issues that sometimes remain under the radar of mainstream publishing on the region including, among many other topics, political radicalism, higher education, religious life, local history, bilateral relations, cultural innovation, minority protection, ethnic tensions, etc. Many important determinants and aspects of the transformation of the former Warsaw Pact states have not yet been systematically analyzed. SPPS aims to create a space for this to happen.

SPPS is open for submission of book projects that fit this remit. We will be glad to consider proposals for research monographs, edited collections and, in some cases, doctoral theses for publication. SPPS is also open for proposals of re-publications of seminal, but not widely available works and translation projects.

All SPPS titles are published as accessibly priced paperbacks, allowing for the widest possible dissemination. Submissions are reviewed by members of the large Editorial Committee and Advisory Board, headed by the series’ General Editor Andreas Umland, Dr.phil. (FU Berlin), Ph.D. (Cambridge), at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.

Please request further information and proposal submission guidelines from:

Jakob Horstmann, ibidem Commissioning Editor
