Research Collections

East View produces a variety of collections attractive to researchers and graduate level students in political science disciplines.

We offer unique materials from WWII military archives not previously available in the West. Our collections comprise military books and dissertations written by top-ranking Soviet commanders and published by various Soviet military academies.

Regional collections from Russia and Ukraine cover the most interesting period of the history of the former USSR – the collapse of the Soviet regime. Newest research materials are newly declassified documents from Ukrainian KGB on the Chernobyl disaster.

Our demographic collections include findings for censuses from the Russian Empire (1897), important statistical resources of the Soviet Union, and a tally of prison inmates from 1970 to 1994 conducted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Most of East View’s indispensable collections are now available in two formats: microfiche and CD-ROM (full-image PDF).
