the auspices of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic
Studies (AAASS) and with the support of the National Endowment for the
Humanities, the U.S. State Department's Title VIII program, and the International
Research and Exchanges Board (IREX). The bibliography is currently based
at the University Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. ABSEES covers
North American scholarship on East-Central and Eastern Europe and the
former Soviet Union, and includes citations for journal articles, books,
book chapters, book reviews, dissertations, government publications,
