The Eurasia Center of John von Neumann University, with the support of the Magyar Nemzeti Bank, presents its book series , The Eurasia Series. The Eruasia Center believes that the world is undergoing profound changes and is currently at a point where political, economic, and technological development on the Eurasian continent will take new patterns and forms, and the analysis of this process requires an interdisciplinary approach. The new book series published by the Eurasia Center serves this general purpose. In order to contribute to the discussion on the rise of Eurasia, the Series put focus on the political, economic, and social aspects of this process in the form of anthologies published in both English and Hungarian. The Eurasia Center hopes that The Eurasia Series’ very first issue could be considered as a valuable contribution to understanding on geopolitical trends in Eurasia and Eurasia’s growing importance in our world.
