“Przegląd Wschodni” is a quarterly academic journal published by the Centre for East European Studies in the University of Warsaw. It was founded in 1990 and emerged, following delegalisation of the Solidarity movement, from circles associated with the movement grouped around the underground journal “Obóz”. The “Przegląd Wschodni” prize has been awarded annually since 1994. It is given to the best academic work on eastern European themes. It has an international ethos and is held in high esteem by scholars. As each year passes, it attracts greater attention from authors and from domestic and international publishers. Previous winners have been drawn from a variety of disciplines, including history, law, political science and ethnology and from various countries, such as Belarus, France, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine and the United States. Prize-winning books should ‘address novel themes and show their current relevance to public life’.
