At the beginning of April, the International Fair of Intellectual Literature “non/fiction Spring” was held at Gostiny Dvor on Ilyinka. More than 250 publishing houses took part in it, and 42,266 people visited the fair. Publishing House of the Higher School of Economics is a regular participant in the fair, traditionally preparing new book releases for its beginning.

Twice a year, in spring and winter, non/fiction hosts seminars and round tables with the participation of famous experts. Publishers, from small to large, present here the main new releases of the season, which readers can purchase immediately. A visitor with a suitcase full of books is not uncommon. The fair also serves as a large-scale platform for communication between authors, publishers, booksellers, literary critics, agents and translators.

Andrey Vinogradov, associate professor School of Historical Sciences of the National Research University Higher School of Economics, presented the next book in the Polystoria series – “Metropolitans, Sages, Translators in Medieval Europe”. He noted that this work collected and described the results of many years of research carried out by employees Scientific and educational laboratory of medieval studies of the National Research University Higher School of Economics and their colleagues, which were discussed at conferences on this topic for two years. In addition to research, the book publishes the first translation from Latin into Russian of the treatise of the Italian scientist Boncompagno da Signa “On the disaster of old age and decrepitude.” “We remain true to the principle of showing something new and interesting,” Andrey Vinogradov emphasized.

“Metropolitans, Sages, Translators in Medieval Europe” is a collection of the most important relevant historical studies. The book talks about how churches known to every Russian, such as the Church of the Intercession on the Nerl in the Vladimir region, appeared, reveals the topic of embalming, explaining how and why this phenomenon arose, and also touches on the issue of the circulation of bilingual documents in the practice of communication between Rus’ and the Latin cultural circle .

The series will continue: the release of several new books – original research and translations – was announced at the fair.

Another new product that the HSE Publishing House presented at non/fiction was Sofia Koval’s book “Seriously About Dvorkin. Contemporary Anglo-American Philosophy of Law”, published as part of the Project for Serial Monographs in Socio-Economic and Human Sciences. Its author, Sofya Koval, senior lecturer at the Department of Legal Theory and Comparative Law at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, told how Dvorkin’s works prompted her to study the philosopher’s work “deeply and for a long time.”

Explaining how the first part of the book’s title, “About Dworkin Seriously,” came about, Sofia Koval shared that she resorted to a kind of homage, referring the reader to Dworkin’s work “Taking Rights Seriously.”

“When I’m doing Ronald Dworkin, I have to clear out my desk. And in order to put things in order on the table, you need to put things in order in the apartment as a whole, and this is the whole Anglo-American philosophy of law. Thus, I had to “clean up everywhere” in order to understand what Ronald Dworkin is doing,” this is how Sophia revealed the meaning of the book’s title.

As Alexander Pavlov, head of the Serial Monographs Project, noted, Sofia Koval’s book can be useful to students, legal scholars, political scientists, philosophers and ethical philosophers. He also spoke about the prospects for the development of the project, which, despite the difficulties with acquiring licenses from foreign copyright holders, is alive and growing. In the very near future, readers will have access to the books by Olga Baisha “On the Integral Dimension of the Ukrainian Crisis”, Bernd Stahl, Doris Schröder and Rowena Rodriguez “The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence” (translation from English).

In less than two months, at the annual book festival “Red Square” on June 6–9, the HSE Publishing House will once again delight its readers with new releases.
