We are late getting to the current edition of Uncommon Knowledge with Yuri Yarim-Agaev. A distinguished young physicist in the early 1970s, Yarim-Agaev was a graduate student at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology when he joined a dissident movement. In 1978 he joined the Moscow Helsinki Group, the dissident organization that monitored Soviet compliance with the human-rights provisions of the Helsinki Accords. Now a financial analyst in New York, he devotes a great deal of his time to insuring that the lessons of Soviet communism are not forgotten. To paraphrase Lenin, what is to be learned? Through our arrangement with the Hoover Institution, we are pleased to present Peter Robinson’s interview with Yarim-Agaev in its entirety.
