About the Author:

Paul Gregory is in charge of Hoover's research on the Soviet state and party archives. His project has brought together economists, historians and political scientists from around the world to do analytical work on Hoover's rich holdings of Soviet-era documents. Gregory and his team have produced more than fifty articles and seven books, including two that have received international awards. He served as editor of the seven-volume History of Stalin's Gulag (published jointly by Hoover and the Russian Archival Service), which was awarded the silver human rights award of the Russian Federation in 2006 and is an editor of the three volume Stenograms of the Politburo of the Communist Party (published jointly by Hoover and the Russian Archival Service). Two of his edited works - Behind the Façade of Stalin's Command Economy and The Economics of Forced Labor: The Soviet Gulag -- have been published by Hoover Press. In addition to Hoover support, Professor Gregory's current research on Soviet dictatorship and repression is supported by the National Science Foundation. Paul Gregory holds an endowed professorship in the Department of Economics at the University of Ho u s t o n and is a research professor at the German Institute for Economic Research in Berlin.
