Freedom for Publishing, Publishing for Freedom: The Central and East European Publishing Project
Timothy Garton Ash, Ralf Dahrendorf, Richard Davy, Elizabeth Winter
Central European University Press, Jan 1, 1995 - Political Science - 201 pages
The Oxford-based Central and East European Publishing Project was a remarkable initiative to support embattled Central and East European publishers and journals. Throughout the nine years of its existence it helped to punch holes through the cultural iron curtain by encouraging translations and a "common market of the mind" between East and West. The Project's history-- told here by some of its leading participants-- illuminates the nature of the recent changes in Central and Eastern Europe.
