Despite of the obviously increased interest to the history of Siberian municipal organs, it is the first documentary edition in our region for the present.

THE LESSONS OF THE PAST FOR NEW GENERATION
Already half a year the humanitarian project "The lessons of the past for new generation" realized by the Faculty of Philology and Journalism of the Irkutsk State University, Irkutsk Public Foundation "Press and Society" under support of the "Open Society" Institute, is acting at Irkutsk. This project is based on the studies on development of public consciousness, rights of the person, freedom and publicity at the Irkutsk Region in 1980ths. It was nonordinary time, when political life in our country sometimes made sharp spurts forwards, sometimes zigzags depending on what the leader became a next general secretary.
