RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 15551117 LA Abridged translation of: Arkhipelag Gulag, 1918-1956. T1 The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956 : an experiment in literary investigation A1 Solzhenit︠s︡yn, Aleksandr Isaevich,, Ericson, Edward E., PB Collins Harvill PP London YR 1986 SN 0002712652 9780002712651 AB 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.
