The Library's Behind the Book video series engages Harvard Kennedy School faculty on their recent publications and the stories behind their research.

The Chinese Communist Party is profoundly influential both inside and outside China's borders. But few know of its early history, and until recently, the most prominent narrative of its origins came from the Party itself. But the recent release of two collections of documents reveals a more nuanced story than the official narrative.

Political Buttons Collection

The Political Buttons at HKS Collection includes over 1,500 political buttons from the 20th and 21st centuries. The buttons in this collection represent state, local, and national U.S. political campaigns from Calvin Coolidge to Hillary Clinton. The collection also contains buttons pertaining to significant ballot initiatives, social issues and movements, and political demonstrations.
