‘Essential Reading’ on Ukraine—and Putin’s Aggression
With the publication today (March 2) of our anniversary interview with Julia Orlova, publisher of Ukraine’s Vivat Publishing—and with the attention that Ukraine and its publishing community will be getting at Bologna Children’s Book Fair (Monday through March 9)—we’d also like to alert you to new resources from the Association of University Presses.

As you may recall, the AUPresses, as they’re called, had nearly 30 of the association’s member presses answer a call shortly after Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, providing resource materials on the history and background of the conflict. This was released on March 3, 2022.

For our story report today, the association has let Publishing Perspectives know than an updated and expanded list of such Ukraine crisis resources is now available here, free to use and explore.

“As the first anniversary of Russia’s horrific invasion of Ukraine nears,” the association writes, “our community’s resources for understanding the region and this brutal war continue to offer much-needed knowledge and context.”

AUPresses is a member of the International Publishers Association (IPA), and we have below a complete, linked listing for each university’s offerings on the subject.

The association continues to solicit updates and additional material from its full membership of university presses, and updates this listing as needed.
