The SPOL (Spole?nost pro odbornou literaturu) association, in accordance with its statutes, aims at the production and dissemination of high-quality specialized literature, chiefly in humanities, but also delving into literature of fact, investigative political publications and fiction. The titles are often issued under collaboration with Czech and foreign foundations and other sponsors.
Many books are published under long-term projects enabling the association to present the individual titles outside the standard distribution network (e.g. at exhibitions, presentations, conventions and conferences, international meetings, etc.).
The projects that are currently under way include:
The Austrians and the Czechs, the Czechs and the Germans
Selected Writings by H. G. Adler
Selected Writings by Marie Ebner-Eschenbachová
Selected Writings by Karel Kaplan – The Chronicles of the Communist Czechoslovakia
Art History and Theory
Quality Children's Literature – in collaboration with the SOS Children's Village in Brno-Medlánky
