Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn


Author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Published by Vintage Classics ISBN 9781784871512 EAN 9781784871512 Bic Code Cover Paperback


A vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators but also of everyday heroism, ‘The Gulag Archipelago’ is Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s grand masterwork. Based on the testimony of some 200 survivors, and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn’s own eleven years in labour camps and exile, it chronicles the story of those at the heart of the Soviet Union who opposed Stalin, and for whom the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair. A thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power, this edition of The Gulag Archipelago was abridged into one volume at the author’s wish and with his full co-operation.
