Abstract

The Harvard Project on the Soviet Social System Online provides access to digitized materials selected from the Harvard Project on the Soviet Social System, a unique survey conducted in the late 1940s and early 1950s with post–World War II expatriates from the USSR. The collection includes summary transcripts, translated into English, from over 700 interviews conducted with the volunteer subjects, who could speak primarily about their last period of normal life in the Soviet Union, from 1917 to the eve of World War II. Providing insight into political, economic, social, and cultural conditions, these surveys formed the basis for scholarship that was, in its own time, groundbreaking. Fully searchable and accompanied by extensive explanation of the terms used in the framework, the collection is potentially of use to both researchers and students
