Mir Publications is a name known to most Indians associated with excellent books in almost all subjects of interest, but especially in science and mathematics. Many people who I know, confess that the science and mathematics that they have understood, they owe to Mir Publications. I couldn’t agree more. The fascination that these books left me with in my childhood has is unforgettable. Also associated publishers were Foreign Languages Publishing House, Raduga Publishers and Progress Publishers. When I say Mir later, what is meant is the books published by ensemble of these publishers from the Soviet era.

The first book that I remember reading is one from Progress was when I was in 4th Grade, the Title of the Book was All About Telescope and since then I am like Alice in Wonderland. Russian books, rather books English published in the Soviet Russia, have had an unforgettable impression on my life.  The joy that these books have provided to me over the years is immeasurable. Not only these books were cheap, they were also published in many Indian languages: Hindi, Marathi and Bengali I know for sure. This provided an ideal platform and inspiration for many, who came to science. An entire generation of Indians came of age with the titles from Mir Publications. But with end of the Soviet era, the Mir saga came to an end. The Mir titles which at times were cheaply and easily available became scant. And finally ceased to be a part of the mainstream bookshops. Only places one could find them was in the used book shops, and that too became scarce as the years went by. This trend continues till date. To find a Mir title today even in a used book shop is nothing less than a MIRacle!!

I have collected many books from these publishers and they form most precious part of my collection.

Some of the classics of the Mir books are by Yakov Pereleman, Landau, Kitaigorodosky, Zeldovich, Matveev and the list goes on…

Some notable series were: Science for Every One, What is…, ABC of…, Physics for Everyone…

Many of the titles will be lost forever never to delight a new generation of readers. The knowledge that at least these books existed should not be lost. This blog is an project to make an comprehensive list of  the titles published by Mir and over the years. So that the knowledge about these titles goes to the larger community, so that in the future someone can take up their digitization and / or republication. I urge and request all the people who owe even a little bit to books by Mir to contribute their knowledge about these books here…

How you can contribute?

You can contribute to this project in many ways:

  1. Add the books which are not in the list.
  2. Add information whether e – copies of the books are available.
  3. Add the list of the books which were republished, and status of their availability.
  4. Locate hard copies of the books, in library or personal collections.
  5. Add information about the book, write reviews, personal experiences.

I hope that this small endeavor will be worth the effort and these gem of books will delight generations of readers to come…

    I have some mir titles with me. How can I get more titles and share them. Kindly revert.

      Hi Vijay,

      What we are trying to do here is to catalog the Mir books that were published in areas of science and mathematics.
      Many of the books that are listed here, are available on the internet, but most of them are not. When we have a complete listing
      of such books then we can see which ones are not there and perhaps, ask people to make copies of them. As far as getting more titles,
      you won’t get them in new book shops, but only in used ones. And all of them are out of print, so whenever you see one in a used book shop
      or at a raddiwala just grab it.

      Also just for making e-books, you can search libraries that you have access to,
      for the volumes that we do not have.
      If you want any help in how to make e-books from scans, I can help you with that.
      You can help the site by listing the books that you have, or know and which are not listed here.
      Amongst the books that are listed here you can add the covers, or other metadata, or reviews.
      Will be good to see more people interested in this endeavor.

        Mr. Damitr,
        It is simply fantastic to meet another MIR publisher fanatic(i assume). I simply love these books and have been buying/collecting as many as I can find around. I and my friends have a collection of about 40-50 titles in physics and mathematics alone.
        I hope it will be good news for you to know that I’m getting 5 books reprinted by CBS publishers ( they’ve printed books like irodov,krotov,piskunov,berman,maron,l.a.sena,vygodsky,ivanov etc.) The books I’ve suggested are going to come into the market probably next year; they are part of the marvelous set of books written by L.V.Tarasov, Belikov and Savelyev etc in higher physics.

    • damitr says:

      No. I am not.
      But I am in touch with diracofindia, via L N U.
      diracofindia has given me names of some of the titles in the Physics Problem Books.

  3. damitr says:


    Thanks for the response. As you have guessed correctly I am a MIR fanatic :)
    I have been searching for these books in raddi shops and a few old/used book depots that I know in different cities. It is great to know that CBS is publishing some of these gems! Cheers! We need to get all of them back rolling!

  4. Anil says:

    Hi Damitr

    Even i grew up reading many soviet era books published by mir, raduga. There also used to be a magazine called MIsha. I wonder what has happened to all these books. Can you share the soft copies of the books you have in this website.

    • damitr says:

      Hi Anil,

      Yes, there used to be a magazine called Misha. I am also searching for it, from quite some time but not have been able to get any. Neither I know of people who have this magazine. These books stopped publishing after the former USSR collapsed. As of now, most of these books, baring a few exceptions republished by CBS in India are out of print. And as of now I have not posted any links to soft-copies of these books here. But many of them are available on the internet already.

  7. Srinivas says:

    Hi Damitr,
    I would like to buy rights of all books (wat ever possible) by Chingiz Aitmatov for India.(I guess its Raduga Publishers? does it belong to MIR now) Does the copy right still hold good and should I approach someone or can I go ahead and use them since author and publishers are not accessible?
    Pls reply to my email pjittus@yahoo.com .

    • damitr says:

      Hi Srinivas,

      I do not know where to contact for republication rights. But if the books are more than 50 years old the copyright does not hold. Maybe approaching the Russian embassy might be a good idea.

    • damitr says:


      I did not get what you are trying to say, where did you get the covers and content of the book? It may be that all the book is also available there.


  10. s.sanjay says:

    Dear D,
    no such luck. got it from a book-order site. the site is “http://www.antikva.hu/onan/reszletek.jsp;jsessionid=21BBEC4D332883E0E3D67FE46AEB7769?katalogusid=247607&affiliate=bongeszes”. about two months ago, only the cover was available. now the contents pages have also become available. posted the contents just to show the relevance of the book. anybody wanting to know about S.M. Nikolsky, just has to type his name on google. He was a legend. MK Potapov is his student. In the erstwhile USSR, top mathematicians and scientists used to write school textbooks and study-aids.

  11. dbj.an says:

    Hi Damitr
    Thank you very much for providing these books.
    My favorite subject is chemistry, and now studying in the field of polymer.
    Quantum chemistry lesson when I pass, I met with ABC Quantum and Quantum and beyond, that I was interested in physics.
    (This book is the Persian translation)
    I was very pleased to see other books from this publisher.
    I learned ensure physics should be published Mir.
    Chemistry of these books have you published?
    Or you can guide me in preparation chemistry and polymer books?
    Thank you

    Hi, Damitr!
    It’s nice to know that a member(s) from Library.nu are continue contributing to the ebook community.

    I have scanned N. Piskunov – Differential and Integral Calculus 1969, and intended to post on LNU, but too bad, the site’s now closed.

    I think your site is the best place to post this book, a MIR books’ site.

    The book is 20MB size, in DJVU, 600dpi, OCRed, no cover:

    Hey Damitr
    I just tried to convert the electronic russian versions of the kvant magazine into english using google translate. As I found out not many(with not many i mean about 100-150) articles were available in pdf format. The problem I am facing with these pdf documents is that they are written in basically two fonts -the introductory para in a font recognisable by google translator as well as a few cyrillic fonts i have downloaded for ms word.However the remaining paragraphs are written in a font not recognisable by either of these systems. I want to know how can i determine in which font are these remaining paras are written so that i can download it and carry on the translation work. Just download one kvant problems page from here :(http://kvant.mccme.ru/pdf/2001/04/kv0401probl.pdf).

    The figures, the lucidity of the explanations and the production quality of the books… were par excellence. And the cost of the books was so low, it seemed as if I was stealing the book from the bookshop.

  84. akumar says:

    Hey Damitr,

    I am currently a student at McGill University studying Pure Mathematics and having a research direction in mathematical pedagogy as well as mathematical physics+chemistry specifically in the realm of Non-linear/Linear PDEs used for many-bodies problem and density functional theory. I was wondering, aside from V.I.Arnold’s Lectures on Partial Differential Equations, is there an esteemed book on Partial Differential Equations from Soviet/Russian School of Thought for mathematics? I am trying to find some references about great russian books on this topic but, it is quite hard.

    Thank you in advance,



  85. Krishna Dayanidhi says:

    I have in my possession many Physics books published by Mir Moscow. How can I help in this venture.

  86. Enrico says:

    Hi to everybody,

    nice to see other MIR-enthusiastic people around the world.
    I started buying MIR books when I was a young physics student in 1985 and never stopper, not for collectionism, bu to use them :-) I’ve now more than one hundred title in math and phys, in Italian, French and English.

    I would like to inform this community that in Italy the old network distributing Russian books is almost gone, but still a few survive and they have yet many NEW (!) MIR books in English and French. I can post the catalog or send it to the interested people that could directly contact the bookseller.

    And in the meantime, ask to share this kind of info on books availability, both used or news, on internet or physical shops :-)

    About Aditya’s question: I have two books, one is by Bitsadze, the other by Kolmogorov, Tichonov titled something like PDE in Physics, or Equations of mathematical physics, and another book of the Course by Smirnov devoted to PDEs. To my knowledge other books are: Krasnov M., A book of problems in ordinary differential equations, and Mikhailov V., PDEs.



    • akumar says:

      What is the book by Kolmogorov? I like his way of teaching mathematics! I found the other books. How do you like A course on higher mathematics: Integral equations and Partial Differential equations by Smirnov? It looks quite long, and I can’t seem to find a copy anywhere… How do you like Mikhailov V. book on PDEs? I am just trying to get a feel for them because I am reading a few others right now.

  87. Enrico says:

    Yesterday evening I checked at home, the books were by Tichonov and Samarskij … not Tichonov and Kolmogorov, sorry. I agree with you, Kolmogorov was really a great! There are two books by these authors, one is titled “Equation of Math. Phys” by T. and S., the other “A Collection of Problems in Mathematical Physics” by Budak, S. and T. I found these two extremely useful and nice to read, but I was mainly dealing with wave propagation in that period. I love some chapters of the mathematical work of Smirnov, particularly analysis, complex number, linear algebra and group theory, honestly little less the chapters on special functions and PDEs. Bitsadze came with two books, one of PDE and one on problem with PDEs. Michailov and Bitsadze book sound very good at a first glance, but I bought them more recently and didn’t had yet a working practice with them :-) … Extremely well done and useful is the book of Kolmogorov of Functional analysis, best coupled with the Trenoguine book on the same issue, it provides much of the useful general framework important for PDEs too. Concerning ODE, apart from the already mentioned books by Arnold (Geometrical methods/Singularities/ODE) I suggest also L. Esgolts (ODE and calculus of variations). Not Russian, :-), but very well done – I used it a lot – the books of M.K.Keane on PDEs. If you are interested also in numerical methods for PDEs … this is another issue … Ciao

  88. Enrico says:

    I had a look through this site, so I’m not sure it was not already posted, but here are two important links to find many Russian books. The largest repository I think is http://www.eknigu.com, they also have Russian versions, and the second is only for lucky people who can understand Cyrillic :-) http://www.mccme.ru/free-books/ … it contains also many un-translated booklets, including some little treasure by Arnold (use Google to translate at least the site content). Final suggestion: similar to http://www.arxive.org, may be not so large!,, also exists http://gallica.bnf.fr/. Ciao

          Thanks db.jan for the effort. Can you please post-process the book through scan-tailor, so that the resulting output is much better? Also resolution looks low., what dpi did you scan with? If you need any help in post processing please do not hesitate to ask for help. Thanks for the effort again.


          • db.jan says:

  101. suvidh says:

    hey i am suvidh and i am studying in class11 pcm can you suggest a good collection of book on mathematics which covers portion of iit maths ..

    • desperadomar says:

      @suvidh, Thanks suvidh for visiting our site. Great to know you are preparing for IIT.A lot young minds ask the same here in mirtitles but here we deal with the books which are of particular interest which deals with all science subjects, so I think some books are really for beginners and others for pro’s.May be you can get some books here about a topic in mathematics viz calculus etc but not single(many) book covering the whole syllabus of IIT. But you can find the problem books listed here can help you a lot,but it also have some pros and cons ie some for beginners and others for pros ,each book require varying degree of knowledge.some of them are already listed in the post that it can be used for IIT preparation.So in my opinion get the syllabus of JEE and look each books content listed in each post and check whether it is useful to you.Hope this helps you.

    Congratulations for the great you have done in uploading some of the MIR physics and Engineering series which are invaluable to any serious reader. Great Job! Would please explain how to insert the password “mirtitles” in order to download those WinRAR compressed MIR titles I am interested? By the way, I have some MIR books in PDF format ( translated into Spanish) that I would like to share with you and your loggers if you are interested. Please guide me as to how I can do that.
    Best Wishes from Venezuela, South America.

    • The Mitr says:

      Dear Cidyroco,

      Thanks for the kind words. for password related problems please read the FAQs.

      Yes, we know that there are quite a few books in Spanish from Mir Publishers. Would you be kind enough to make a list of the books, with a little information about them and their links. We would be glad to publish such a list. If the English version of the book is already present on the blog, we will add links to the Spanish file also. This would be a great contribution for the Spanish speaking people.

    Hi Dmitr,
    I wish to buy and read soviet books in english. Till I found this blog of yours, I had been searching fanatically for them over the net but couldnt find any proper site. Though I appreciate this hard work in making the titles available in easy e format, I find it difficult to read these e books. It’ll be great If you could suggest some way to buy/obtain the hardcover books.

    Hi bro,
    Will you provide me the links of science fiction books translated in hindi:
    * Aelita
    * Char din ki chandni
    * Ek tha jalthaliya.

  117. Ernesto says:

    You may find many MIR books to download freely at http://www.elibros.cl/.
    This website contains ZIP files of many books, mostly from MIR; the books (MIR or not MIR) are mostly in spanish, but there are many in english.

    a) On that URL look at the left column and click on “Matemática” (Mathematics), “Física” (Physics), “Química” (Chemistry), “Biología” (Biology), “Informática” (Computer Science), “Astronomía” (Astronomy), “Ingeniería” (Engineering) and “Novedades” (Recently added). Each of these links will take you to a new page on this website.

    b) Say that you click on “Matemáticas”: the new page will show you some books . At the bottom of the page click on “Siguiente” (Next) to get the next page of “Mathematics”. Keep clicking on “Siguiente” on the new pages until you get to the 4th page.

    c) On page 4th, near the bottom, you will find two books from MIR:
    “A course on Diff. Geometry and Topology” and “Acerca de la demostración en geometría”.
    Cilck on “Ver detalle” on “A course on Diff. Geometry and Topology”.

    d) You will get a new page. In the second column, below the book cover, you will find the links to download the book. As you will see this book has THREE parts, each one on a separate ZIP file (lets call them “file-parts”).

    e) Download it this way:
    — Download all three file-parts to an empty folder on your PC
    — Select al three files on that folder
    — Unzip and extract all the selected files to that same folder; that way you will get just ONE file that merges the THREE file-parts.

  125. Thanks for your continued efforts, I’m a student preparing for IITJEE and once i came to your blog and started loving it. I faced a problem of not able to collect good books to prepare and once i saw this wah i was stunned. I still thought many were like me as there are no authentic blogs for all preparation material. So i started my own blog to help others like me https://devilexams.wordpress.com

    I’ve started posting books and some of them are from your blog, i’ve given proper credits. I don’t think you’ll have any objections.

    There are some non Mir books which are good so i’ve started posting even them.

    Kudos keep your efforts! Thanks for helping many like me !

  138. Suman Saraf says:

    Folks, do you know of bookshops in and around Delhi who might stock new and used titles? I grew up in Dhanbad and Bokaro (45 kms away, which had a steel plant with Russian collaboration) had a russian book shop. I used to be amazed by those russian titles and they were very inexpensive. While I donated most of my collection earlier, I am looking to buy some of these for my young kids. I did find a few Perelman books on amazon (pretty expensive), but I am wondering what are good locations to hunt in and around Delhi for such books.
