CEU Press has come out with an important testimony to the fate of Estonia in the 20th century. The autobiographical life accounts of 25 common Estonians range from Hilja, born in 1905, to Tiia (1973).
Friedebert Tuglas’s The Poet and the Idiot can be read in English now, with eight more stories, in the first Estonian member of the CEU Press Classics series.
Financial conglomeration linkages in Europe were unfolded by a young Tartu graduate.
The catalogue and the website of the Central European University Press present many more comparative and collective books that carry precious chapters relating to Estonians and Estonia.
* Estonia (Livonia) found itself on the edges of the world also in the middle ages – historians confirm.
* A book on forced migrations in the USSR is inconceivable without frequent references to Estonians.
* A chapter in the book about the attempts to rewrite history in a politically motivated way describes the struggle for official recognition of ‘displaced’ group memories in post-soviet Estonia.
* Our book on eugenics in east and central Europe presents the reception of the concept in the interwar Estonia.
* In the closing volume of our series on demons, spirits and witches, witchraft in Estonia is discussed from two aspects: the reflection of witch trials in folk belief, and community conflicts linked to witchcraft.
* One of the most successful CEU Press books ever, contains entries on the following Estonians: Elise Kaer-Kingisepp, Vera Poska-Grünthal, and Lilli Suburg.
* How was restitution of confiscated property handled after the fall of the communist regime? The rich analysis of the topic examines the Estonian case, too.
