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

The book series Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics & Society (SPPS), launched in 2004, publishes new empirical research on understudied aspects of the post-Soviet transitions. With more than 140 titles available in English, German, and Russian, SPPS is one of the most comprehensive resources on the recent history and current affairs of post-Soviet states.

The series' goal is to identify themes that have remained below the radar of mainstream international research. Many important 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 currently open for submission of book projects that fit this remit. We explicitly welcome proposals from Polish Studies and related areas. We are glad to consider proposals for research monographs, edited collections and, in some cases, PhD-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 the prestigious Editorial Committee and Advisory Board, spear-headed by Series Editor Dr Andreas Umland (Kiev).
