Publisher Comments:

Solzhenitsyn's gripping epic masterpiece, the searing record of four decades of Soviet terror and oppression, in one abridged volume, authorized by the author

About the Author

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was born in Kislovodsk, Russia, in 1918. A twice-decorated captain in the Soviet Army, he was stripped of his rank, arrested, and convicted in 1945 for privately criticizing Stalin. Exiled from the USSR in 1974, Solzhenitsyn eventually settled in the United States before returning to his homeland twenty years later. Among his other acclaimed works are the novels One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and The First Circle. His literary awards include the Nobel Prize for Literature and the Medal of Honor for Literature.

An incredible book! It helps that what solzhenitsyn was writing about is so extreme as to be beyond exaggeration, but what makes this one of the best books I have ever read is his unique ability to write with depth of awareness, both from the inside and from the outside, and depth of analysis, and finally, depth of humanity.
