    Political scientist Andrzej W. Tymowski conducted these interviews while he was at Yale University. Tymowski interviewed activists in Komitet Obrony Robotnikow (KOR), Solidarnosc, and other Polish dissident movements of the 1970s and 1980s, activists in Czechoslovak and East German dissident movements of the same period, and observers of these movements, about the history of the movements and the social dynamics of participation in them.
    The descriptions of the interviewees included in the container list were taken verbatim from descriptive notes written by Tymowski.
    Tymowski used this research in several publications:
    "The Unwanted Social Revolution: 1989 in Poland," East European Politics and Societies 7, no. 2 (Spring 1993).
    "Youth Activism in the East European Transformation," Communist and Post-Communist Studies (June 1994).
    "The Unwanted Revolution: From Moral Economy to Liberal Society in Poland (The Social Origins of Reform and Counter-Reform)," PhD diss., Yale University, 1995.
    The Hoover Institution Library & Archives acquired the transcripts in 1993 and 1995.
