If you are not a member of the American Association for Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages (AATSEEL), please visit the AATSEEL web page to find out how to join. If you are a member of AATSEEL and wish to review any book on this list, contact John Bartle. Include the book number and any other relevant information in your message. If you have not reviewed for SEEJ before, please include information about your background, interests, current affiliation, and qualifications. Please note that although this page is updated as regularly as possible, the book you desire may already be assigned, or else may be in process and so temporarily unavailable.
The Guidelines for Reviewers in SEEJ are available on the AATSEEL web page. I have also copied them to this server, so if you want to see them, click here, on Guidelines. We ask that you respect the effort that went into the book under review by striving to be objective in your evaluation. The goal of a review is primarily informative, focusing mainly on the contributions of the given work. State as clearly as possible its argument, methodology, strengths and weaknesses, and identify the readership which might find it of value. The Book Review Editor reserves the right to copy-edit all reviews. If any but minor editorial changes are made in a review, the reviewer will be given the opportunity to re-examine the edited version before it is typeset. You will be asked to proof-read the typeset version of your review before it goes to press. The ultimate decision as to whether to publish a given review belongs to the Editor-in-Chief.
Each book is listed in one or more of the following categories below: Literary Criticism, Literature, and Literary History; Pedagogical Materials and Language Teaching; Linguistics; Music, Folklore, and Popular Culture; Art, Architecture and Religion; Film and Theater; and Fiction, which encompasses both translations of fictional works and books about translation. The subdivision is mine, and I am fully responsible for the categorization. If you are an author of one of these books and feel that I have placed your work in the wrong category, please inform me.
Any comments or suggestions about the organization of this web page are welcome. Contact John Bartle.
