· New paperback edition highlights Sharansky’s relationship with evangelicals. · An established best seller now available to CBA audiences. · Built-in “pro Israel” community will embrace Sharansky and his shared ideals. · Special introduction for Christian audiences written by Sharansky. Sharansky, the famous Soviet dissident who spent a decade in gulags, has authored his vision for defeating terrorists worldwide: launching a flood of democratic initiatives, especially in totalitarian regimes. This book, which gained the attention of President Bush and his administration, outlines Sharansky’s strategies — based on personal experience — for making the world a safer place. Sharansky explains that the “public square test,” which states that an individual knows he is free if he can go to his city’s public square and say whatever he wants, is the bedrock Western right that can find traction in dictatorships. Christian audiences will appreciate Sharansky’s discussions of life in Israel, and his thesis here is critical to understanding and overcoming this generation’s enemies.

About the Author:

Natan Sharansky was born in the Soviet Union and became the world’s most famous champion of freedom when he began agitating for freedom for the USSR’s Jewish population three decades ago. Imprisoned for 11 years, he was freed in 1986 and moved to Israel, where he has held cabinet posts. He and his wife live with their children in Jerusalem.

From AudioFile:

Cited by the current administration as a strong influence on the president, Sharansky's work is part political philosophy, part biography. The two genres are intertwined effortlessly by the former Soviet political prisoner who is now a political leader in Israel. Simon Vance presents a sophisticated and thoughtful reading. His voice is what one would imagine Sharansky's voice might sound like: articulate, cosmopolitan, and passionate. Vance's speech has the accent of one whose first language is not English, but who is a careful English speaker. The core argument is that the world is divided between free and "fear" societies and the way to fight the latter is by promoting freedom. Sharansky also argues that freedom is a universal aspiration of human beings. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
