Short Description

Budapest Review of Books is the English edition of Budapesti Könyvszemle - BUKSZ, a critical quarterly of the social sciences, which was founded in 1989. The journal combines rigorous, lively, and sometimes biting criticism with an open spirit of enquiry about new approaches in the humanitites in Hungary and in the wider world. The primary aim of the English version is to make the debates within the Budapest intellectual milieu accessible outside it. Naturally, it is in our interest to make our ciritcal voice heard by transcending linguistic barriesr. But it is also vital for 'Western' intellectuals to understand how their Central European counterparts view the currend period of spectacular and frequently explosive changes in their region. With the publication of the English edition the editors of the Budapest Review of Books hope to make a contribution towards breaking down old barriers and establishing new meeting points.
