Review Of Books Issues: 365 issues/12 months 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 humanities 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 critical voice heard by transcending linguistic barriers. But it is also
vital for "Western" intellectuals to understand how their Central European
counterparts view the current 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.
