CEU Press publishes fourth OA book for Opening the Future programme

Posted by Tom Grady on Feb. 28, 2022 at 1145

We’re pleased to announce the release of another book, fully funded as open access through our Opening the Future project thanks to library support. Published last week it is now available for free download and also available to buy in print.

Memory Crash: Politics of History In and Around Ukraine, 1980s-2010s by Georgiy Kasianov is a timely reminder that issues of the past worry people no less than issues of the present - with controversies around how a country’s history is interpreted often turning both public and state realms into battlefields of memory. This book is an account of the historical politics in Ukraine embedded within the broader European context, with lessons for countries beyond.

Opening the Future (OtF) at CEU Press is a cost-effective way for libraries to increase their digital collections on the history and culture of Central and Eastern Europe and the former communist countries. It is through this programme that we are able to make in-depth studies on universal issues available to a broader interested audience around the world.

Author Kasianov said “I have benefited from the open access program in my research work and I feel indebted. I sincerely believe that open access to scientific publications contributes worldwide to overcoming the inequalities that still exist in access to knowledge.” 

Subscribing OtF libraries get unlimited multi-user access to curated packages of backlist books, with perpetual access after three years. The Press uses membership funds to produce new frontlist titles in OA format like Georgiy Kasianov’s important new work announced here. All OA titles are available via Project MUSE, OAPEN and the ORL, and are listed on DOAB.
