The Book Series “Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society” looks for one or more possible collector/s, editor/s, introduction author/s, organizer/s, formal style editor/s, contract partner/s and corrector/s of an English or English/German volume assembling various published and unpublished contributions to the discussion about the similarities and dissimilarities between the Weimar Republic/Weimarer Republik and Post-Soviet Russia.

Would you alone, or in cooperation with one or more co-editor/s, be interested to prepare such a collected volume? If so, you would have to:

(b) secure reprint permission from the outlets where the texts appeared first,
(c) unify the formal style of the various texts (i.e. edit their quotes, footnotes, transliteration etc.),
(d) publish in cooperation with me a Call for Additional Papers to be submitted within a short time,
(e) do all the communication with the chapter authors, ibidem-Verlag, and previous publishers, and
(f) sign the contract with ibidem-Verlag and secure contracts from all contributors.
