Soviet Archives Summer Workshop 2010

Sunday, July 18, 2010 to Friday, August 6, 2010

Hoover's Workshop on Totalitarian Regimes studies the history and development of totalitarian regimes in order to understand why they came into being, how they work, and the sources of their durability. By bringing scholars together who study the different regimes, the workshop promotes the comparative study of modes of personal dictatorship, of institutions of coercion and repression, and of the economic and social consequences of totalitarian rule. The workshop's principal resources are the unique and fast- growing holdings of the Hoover Archives on totalitarian regimes in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Hoover Hosts Board of Overseers’ Summer 2010 Meeting

“Ideas have consequences,” said John Raisian, the Tad and Dianne Taube Director at the Hoover Institution, at the Hoover Institution’s Board of Overseers’ annual summer meeting during July 14 and 15.

“Hoover’s distinctive mission has been to generate the ideas that can move the public policy conversation and ultimately policy itself,” said Raisian. From among the many contributions Hoover fellows have made, Raisian cited the all-volunteer military, the intellectual framework of the Reagan presidency, the flat tax, the Taylor rule, choice and accountability in education, and influential thinking on affirmative action and race, conduct of modern warfare, use of preventive force, and America’s political culture wars.
