The authors' team and the National Security Archive would particularly like to thank the following:
The members and staff of the former Governmental Commission of the Czechoslovak Federal Republic for the Analysis of the Events of 1967–1970. In addition to the authors' team, these included Prof. Vojtěch Mencl, Dr. Miloš Bárta, Dr. František Janáček, Dr. Eduard Kubu, Dr. Ondřej Felcman, Dr. Josef Belda, Dr. Karel Krátky, Ivana Ryzcová, Anna Marková, and Alexandra Janácková.

The President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Havel, for contributing the Preface to this volume, receiving the multinational participants in this project at the Prague Castle, and helping make available key documents from Russian archives.
Prof. H. Gordon Skilling, an early supporter of this project and eminent participant in the jointly organized international conference in Prague in 1994, as well as contributor of the Foreword to this volume.
The members of the President's Office (Prague) who provided essential support for the efforts leading to this book, namely Luboš Dobrovsk?, Ivan Medek, and Pavel Seifter.

Dr. Vilém Prečan, the director of the Institute for Contemporary History, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, where the documentary collections gathered by the Commission are preserved, and which sponsors the ongoing publication in Czech of the documentary record of the Prague Spring. The Institute has granted permission for those materials from its collections to be reproduced in this volume, while accepting no responsibility for the accuracy of the English translations.
