"The name of Aida Skripnikova has come to the attention of the Western world as a young Russian girl sent to prison for her religious beliefs. Other names have also surfaced, and we on the outside wonder what the situation is in the Soviet Union. Is there persecution? If so, how extensive is it and what form does it take? Michael Bourdeaux, Xenia Howard-Johnston, and others at the Centre for the Study of Religion and Communism, in London, devote their lives to finding the answers to these questions. What they have offered here is a glimpse into the realities of religious life in the Soviet Union, and a portrait of a courageous girl, and others like her, who maintain their convictions in the face of State and social pressures, including imprisonment"--Back cover.
