Kieran Williams, assistant professor and co-chair of the Department of Political Science, has published a chapter on the secret police in Communist Czechoslovakia in the book Czechoslovakia and Eastern Europe in the Era of Normalisation, 1969–1989, edited by Kevin McDermott and Matthew Stibbe. Williams’s chapter charts the rebuilding of a web of surveillance in the wake of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in August 1968, and uses a surviving file on one family as a case study.
