Journal

East-West Review, the journal of the Great Britain-Russia Society, is published three times a year. The quality of its content and production draws many accolades.

Individual issues typically include feature articles; memoir; new translation of the classic Russian poets; reviews of film, books and recent theatre productions;
and more – anything of interest relating to the geographic area of the pre-1917 Russian Empire and pre-1989 Soviet bloc,
not forgetting contemporary issues in the successor states.

The contents of the Spring/Summer 2019 issue are listed below (scroll down).

A copy of each new issue of East-West Review is mailed directly to all members of the Society immediately on publication.

If you have material that might be of interest to readers of East-West Review, please e-mail the Editor on Journal@nullGBRussia.org.
You are advised to do this before drafting your article; also you are strongly advised to peruse a number of recent issues of East-West Review,
so as to gain a feel for the type of material presented in East-West Review and the amount of space likely to be available for your proposed contribution.
We regret that the journal’s business model (which works) does not allow for payment for articles published (only the printer and the Royal Mail get paid),
but you, the author, retain the copyright and are free to also publish your article elsewhere in similar or amended form.

Back numbers of East-West Review published from Spring 2014 onwards and offprints of most articles published in Volume 7 (2008) and later
can be obtained from the Editor – Journal@nullGBRussia.org.

26th April 2019  NEWS

We are delighted to learn that Tony Cash’s article, The Svetlana Stalin Letter Affair, published in the Autumn 2017 issue of East-West Review, has been awarded the Bosworth Prize.
The judges remarks have been published by the Frinton Society (Frinton = Former Russian Interpreters of the Navy):

‘The judges commented that the articles from 2017/18 are of a uniformly high standard and a part of modern history.
They chose as winner “The Svetlana Stalin Letter Affair” by Tony Cash, a fascinating tale of political machinations, very well written.’
