The Gulag Archipelago (Vintage Classics)

Author(s): Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Biography & Memoir

A vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators but also of everyday heroism, The Gulag Archipelagois Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's grand masterwork. Based on the testimony of some 200 survivors, and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn's own eleven years in labour camps and exile, it chronicles the story of those at the heart of the Soviet Union who opposed Stalin, and for whom the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair. A thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power, this edition of The Gulag Archipelagowas abridged into one volume at the author's wish and with his full co-operation.' The Gulag Archipelagohelped to bring down an empire. Its importance can hardly be exaggerated' Doris Lessing, Sunday Telegraph
