This collection of 10 oral histories features Russian economic reformers and human rights activists, all of whom played leadership roles in the movements that have transformed Russian society over the past 50 years. The collection was developed by the Duke University Program on History, Public Policy and Social Change, under the leadership of Professors Robert Korstad and Robert Conrad, and with essential assistance from the The Gaidar Institute for the Economy in Transition, Moscow, Russia.
The interviews were conducted by Michael Alexeev and Sam Greene, in Russia, in June, 2009.
