Who are we and what do we do

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. We also publish long reads, mini-interviews, podcasts, and profiles of researchers and research projects active in the region to provide a full picture of current scholarship.
