East View Press is the journal and book publishing division of East View Information Services and its related company, East View Geospatial. Currently, East View Press is the publisher of six periodicals and the exclusive distributor of two periodicals devoted to major international and public policy issues, especially as they relate to the geographic area of the former Soviet Union and China. In addition, East View Press occasionally publishes books, also targeted for researchers, dealing with international security, Slavic and Sino studies, and geography and mapping. Regardless of format, East View Press has the mission of adding special value (usually by translation into English) to authoritative source materials in order to make them available to the widest possible audience globally. Since 1989 the East View companies have uncovered and distributed an amazing collection of key vernacular-language materials from countries all over the world. The overwhelming majority of these publications still remain inaccessible to end-users who do not read the languages in which they are written. So, the responsibility of East View Press is to selectively bring forward, reformat, translate and publish these valuable materials. Our strongest motivation is to provide information which helps researchers and analysts in the international and public policy fields.
