Scholarly Research, Writing, and Publishing 25 Years after the Collapse of Communism

The event asked: What are the current challenges, successes, and failures in this rich area of interdisciplinary study?

The event was moderated by Tom Blanton, Executive Director of the National Security Archive. Panelists were Robert W. Orttung, Sharon Wolchik, Jim Hershberg, and Svetlana Savranskaya. For more information contact the Global Resources Center at (202) 994-7105.
