The Gulag Archipelago is Solzhenitsyn's masterwork, a vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators and also of heroism, a Stalinist anti-world at the heart of the Soviet Union where the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair. The work is based on the testimony of some two hundred survivors, and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn's own eleven years in labour camps and exile. It is both a thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power
A real eye opener. Especially in light of the direction that the left is presently heading.
Wake Up Call
If this true account of hell on earth living in a totalitarian society doesn’t scare you then you are a fool.
This version is missing quite a bit
This version is missing a lot what is in the original. Hard to follow with audio book. I do Recommend buying the volumes separately
