Counterattack Project, 1947-1970
This collection contains FBI documents covering the monitoring of the publication and publishers of Counterattack. A weekly subscription-based, anticommunist, mimeographed newsletter, Counterattack ran from 1947 to 1955. Founded by former FBI agents, the publication attempted to elucidate examples of communist activity within the United States, share failures of the government to protect against communists, and rally troops against communism. By arousing popular awareness, Counterattack endeavored to influence politics by uniting anticommunists in letter-writing campaigns, counterprotests against communists, and supporting legislation, such as the Nixon-Mundt Bill.

Dissent in Poland: Birth of a Social Movement
Established in 1982 in Warsaw, the KARTA Center is the premier archive chronicling post-World War II dissent in Poland. The Dissent in Poland collections, drawn from KARTA's archives, illuminate key events: the 1970 food riots, the 1980 Solidarity movement's origins, martial law, the 1988 Lenin shipyard takeover, and Communism's 1989 demise. Holding the most extensive Solidarity movement archive, the KARTA Center offers scholars invaluable insights into democratisation, opposition, late Leninist party-states, burgeoning human rights, and the rise of autonomous civil society.
