Before the West became acquainted with Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Leszek Kołakowski, Lech Wałesa, or Vaclav Havel, it was introduced to the works of Milovan Djilas, the first prominent dissident in the history of communist Eastern Europe. Djilas’s books were published in English by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, which was then owned by the author’s friend, William “Bill” Jovanovich. The newly acquired papers contain Djilas’s manuscripts and typescripts sent by him to Jovanovich, both published and unpublished, along with correspondence and related materials.
