Solanus

Solanus was a long-running international journal for the study of the printed and written word in Russia and East-Central Europe.

After a four-year hiatus, publication resumed in 2011 with volume 22, which was more than double the length of its immediate predecessor and comprised scholarly discussions of a wide range of topics within its area of focus.

Unfortunately few articles were submitted for volume 23, and the Editorial Board, after considerable discussion, reluctantly concluded that volume 23 would be the last to appear. 

Back copies of the series from volume 1 (1987) through to volume 23 (2013) can be purchased (subject to availability) using the order form below.
