Bestsellers, scholarly, reference and hard-to-find books
With the largest database of Russian books anywhere, we also offer books from other countries of Eastern Europe and former Soviet Union. Have the title of a hard-to-find book from China? Let us try to find it. Our network of suppliers is vast and spans across Eurasia. Our staff specialists are familiar with the bibliographic data and markets and will help you acquire virtually any book. Finding special titles, including out-of-print or rare books, is an East View strength.

Your purchase on our secure website is convenient and safe. Typically, order fulfillment averages 3-4 weeks from the time of placement. If your order will be delayed, our staff will notify you with an anticipated date of delivery.
While we would like to have every title in stock at all times; all titles listed online are subject to changes in availability. You will receive an email notification within 72 hours of any titles ordered which are temporarily out-of-stock, and an estimate of the number of days until the title is replenished and once again available for immediate shipment.
In the event a title ordered has become out-of-stock indefinitely or out-of-print, you will receive an email notification within 72 hours to amend your order to include a custom search or cancel it altogether.
In this case, your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
