Synopsis:

Drawing on his own incarceration and exile, as well as on evidence from more than 200 fellow prisoners and Soviet archives, Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn reveals the entire apparatus of Soviet repression -- the state within the state that ruled all-powerfully.

Through truly Shakespearean portraits of its victims -- men, women, and children -- we encounter secret police operations, labor camps and prisons; the uprooting or extermination of whole populations, the "welcome" that awaited Russian soldiers who had been German prisoners of war. Yet we also witness the astounding moral courage of the incorruptible, who, defenseless, endured great brutality and degradation. The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956 -- a grisly indictment of a regime, fashioned here into a veritable literary miracle -- has now been updated with a new introduction that includes the fall of the Soviet Union and Solzhenitsyn's move back to Russia.


Review:
"Others have written brilliantly and courageously about their own experience of the Soviet terror and of the ordeals of those close to them. But it is Solzhenitsyn, above all, who has made it possible to imagine the criminal horrors of the Soviet regime both in the magnitude of their history and in their terrible particularity. He is virtually alone among the major writers of the 20th century in having found a form, in THE GULAG ARCHIPELAGO, capable of encompassing the awful moral history of our time."

Hilton Kramer, New York Times, 06/18/1978
