Gulag : a history by Anne Applebaum ( Book )
35 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 3,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A fully documented history of the Soviet camp system, from its origins in the Russian Revolution to its collapse in the era of glasnost. Anne Applebaum first lays out the chronological history of the camps and the logic behind their creation, enlargement, and maintenance. Applebaum also examines how life was lived within this shadow country: how prisoners worked, how they ate, where they lived, how they died, how they survived. She examines their guards and their jailers, the horrors of transportation in empty cattle cars, the strange nature of Soviet arrests and trials, the impact of World War II, the relations between different national and religious groups, and the escapes, as well as the extraordinary rebellions that took place in the 1950s. She concludes by examining the disturbing question why the Gulag has remained relatively obscure, in the historical memory of both the former Soviet Union and the West
Iron curtain : the crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956 by Anne Applebaum ( Book )
26 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 2,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the follow-up to her previous book "Gulag," the author, a journalist, delivers a history of how Communism took over Eastern Europe after World War II and transformed in frightening fashion the individuals who came under its sway. At the end of World War II, the Soviet Union, to its surprise and delight, found itself in control of a huge swath of territory in Eastern Europe. Josef Stalin and his secret police set out to convert a dozen radically different countries to Communism, a completely new political and moral system. In this book, the author describes how the Communist regimes of Eastern Europe were created and what daily life was like once they were complete. She draws on newly opened East European archives, interviews, and personal accounts translated for the first time to portray in detail the dilemmas faced by millions of individuals trying to adjust to a way of life that challenged their every belief and took away everything they had accumulated. Today the Soviet Bloc is a lost civilization, one whose cruelty, paranoia, bizarre morality, and strange aesthetics is captured in the pages of this book

The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956 : an experiment in literary investigation by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on his own experiences before, during, and after his 11 years of incarceration and exile, Solzhenitsyn reveals with torrential narrative and dramatic power the entire apparatus of Soviet repression. Through truly Shakespearean portraits of its victims, we encounter the secret police operations, the labor camps and prisons, the uprooting or extermination of whole populations. Yet we also witness astounding moral courage, the incorruptibility with which the occasional individual or a few scattered groups, all defenseless, endured brutality and degradation. Solzhenitsyn's genius has transmuted this grisly indictment into a literary miracle

Nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs mussten die Bewohner Osteuropas erkennen, dass sie mit der Ankunft sowjetischer Truppen unter eine neue Form totalitärer Herrschaft geraten waren. Hinter der Linie, die bald "Eiserner Vorhang" hieß, wurden die Staaten Osteuropas gewaltsam in sozialistische Gesellschaften verwandelt. Dabei veränderte der Kommunismus nicht nur die Wirtschaft und die Politik, sondern drang in alle Bereiche des Lebens vor. In ihrem neuen Buch zeigt Anne Applebaum, wie dieser Prozess der Unterdrückung vonstattenging und wie der Totalitarismus das Alltagsleben von Millionen von Europäern prägte

Between East and West : across the borderlands of Europe by Anne Applebaum ( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An extraordinary journey into the past and present of the lands east of Poland and west of Russia - an area defined throughout its history by colliding empires, and only now emerging from the clamp of Soviet rule. Travelling from the former Soviet naval centre of Kaliningrad on the Baltic to the Black Sea port of Odessa, Anne Applebaum encounters a rich range of competing cultures, religions, and national aspirations as inhabitants of the borderlands attempt to build a future grounded in their ancestral legacies. In reasserting their heritage, neighbors often unearth old conflicts: in Vilnius, a Lithuanian professor charts a historical conspiracy against his language by the Poles, while his Polish neighbors rail against the Lithuanian determination to deny their ancient claims to the city. In Minsk, a young "post-modernist" couple, seeking a rallying point for Belarusian nationalism, piece together cultures and legends to create tradition where none is remembered, while another resident of the city devotes himself to recovering the Jewish culture that once predominated. Rich in surprising encounters and vivid characters, Between East and West brilliantly illuminates the soul of the borderlands and the shaping power of the past
