Russian and East European Studies
The Russian and East European Studies series was established in 1984. Since then REES has grown to include a list of distinguished books from a variety of disciplinary, ideological, and methodological perspectives on every aspect of the region’s history, politics, society, economics, and culture. With the dissolution of old Cold War boundaries, the series has expanded its scope to include the German-speaking parts of Central Europe as a vital factor in the region. REES thus takes under its purview potentially everything from Aachen to Vladivostok, and from Tirana to Petersburg.
REES is proud to be the home of many prize-winning books and it continues to thrive even as it enters its fourth decade. We look forward to expanding and deepening our publishing efforts to bring you the best new scholarship on this important part of the world.
