CEU Press announces release of 10th OA title funded by Opening the Future

Posted by Tom Grady on Jan. 16, 2023 at 1122

Central European University (CEU) Press is pleased to announce the publication of another open access book that has been funded entirely by library members of the Opening the Future (OtF) programme. 

Available now, the OA book can be freely downloaded and read online, and can also be bought in print. 

  • Rolling Transition and the Role of Intellectuals: The Case of Hungary, András Bozóki. Analysing the rise and fall of dissident intellectuals in Hungary in the late 20th century, this book poses some important questions through the prism of political sociology. Who were Hungary’s dissident intellectuals and what did they want? Under what conditions do intellectuals rebel and what are the patterns of their protest? And how did their roles change from dissidents to reformers, to movement organisers and politicians?

It will be of interest to anyone researching and working on human rights and democracy and is available on Project MUSE, DOAB, Open Research Library, JSTOR, and OAPEN

Funding for this new OA title comes from the Press’ collective library membership programme Opening the Future, bringing the initiative’s OA output to 10 titles. Opening the Future 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. 

Subscribing libraries get unlimited multi-user access to curated packages of backlist books, with perpetual access after three years. The Press uses membership funds solely to produce new frontlist titles in OA format.
