Academic Studies Press is pleased to announce an open call for manuscript submissions for its new book series, Modern Biographies, edited by Angela Brintlinger (Ohio State University).

One of the best ways into a culture is through the lives of those who created that culture, and Russian culture is no exception. This new series, Modern Biographies, will be an entry point for English-speaking readers to begin to understand the people and processes which have formed Russia as we know it. Russia has always been rich in fascinating figures and in its own biographical tradition. This series aims to bring those lives to an American audience and to English-speakers across the world.

The carefully selected authors of Modern Biographies are all practicing “Russianists”: eminent writers and scholars who have dedicated their careers to investigating and presenting Russia in numerous monographs and scholarly articles, in classrooms, and in public lectures. For readers, this guarantees that these books are illuminating and engaging as well as authoritative and thought-provoking. Compact and clearly written, the volumes are appropriate for specialists and the general public alike and feature a minimal scholarly apparatus, with a list of works cited and suggestions for further reading following the main text.
