At the CEU Review of Books, our mission is to engage and review a diverse array of forward-thinking scholarship that brings clarity and insight to confusing times.

Rather than promoting a particular school of thought, we encourage open discussion from both new and established voices that challenge conventional assumptions and foster intellectual community.

From a region that is often at the faultline of global tensions, and yet underrepresented in global discourse, the CEU Review of Books offers an in-depth perspective on the most prescient questions that affect all of us.

We publish reviews in English of books written in any language across the social sciences and humanities.
