Breaking news for the new year 2023!
YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS has acquired World English rights to Professor Kimmo Rentola’s award-winning non-fiction book “WINTER WARRIORS: How Finland Survived Stalin” (working title) (“Stalin ja Suomen kohtalo, Otava, 2016). WINTER WARRIORS will be published in Spring 2024 simultaneously in the UK YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS UK and in the US YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS US. The deal was closed by Elina Ahlback at Elina Ahlback Literary Agency.
Editorial Director Julian Loose adds:
‘I am thrilled to be publishing Kimmo Rentola’s important work on Finland and Stalin. As the leading scholar on Soviet-Finnish relations, his intimate understanding of the intelligence history during this crucial period makes for a uniquely fascinating and revelatory read. And of course this story has huge resonance at the present time, with Finland joining NATO and the parallels between the Winter War and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Yale University Press will be proud to publish Kimmo’s book in English in the spring of 2024.’
