Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first major history in any language of the Soviet Gulag system. Based on a wide selection of Gulag memoirs and archives only recently made available. Uncovers the vast system of Soviet camps that were responsible for the deaths of countless millions. The hardback was a bestseller and this will receive widespread review and radio coverage. "It should become the standard history of one of the greatest evils of the 20th century" "Economist"

Synopsis:

This work draws together the mass of memoirs published in Russia, to explore the vast network of labour camps which were once scattered across the country. It argues that the camps remained the state's ultimate weapon throughout the 70 years of the Soviet Union.
