Gulag : a history by Anne Applebaum( Book )

59 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 3,154 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 )

38 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 2,464 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
Red famine : Stalin's war on Ukraine by Anne Applebaum( Book )

70 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1929 Stalin launched his policy of agricultural collectivization-in effect a second Russian revolution-which forced millions of peasants off their land and onto collective farms. The result was a catastrophic famine, the most lethal in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR. But instead of sending relief the Soviet state made use of the catastrophe to rid itself of a political problem. In Red Famine, Anne Applebaum argues that more than three million of those dead were Ukrainians who perished not because they were accidental victims of a bad policy but because the state deliberately set out to kill them."

20 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twilight of democracy : the seductive lure of authoritarianism by Anne Applebaum( Book )

46 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in 6 languages and held by 1,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and journalist explains, with electrifying clarity, why some of her contemporaries have abandoned liberal democratic ideals in favor of strongman cults, nationalist movements, or one-party states. Across the world today, from the U.S. to Europe and beyond, liberal democracy is under siege while different forms of authoritarianism are on the rise. In Twilight of Democracy, prize-winning historian Anne Applebaum argues that we should not be surprised by this change: There is an inherent appeal to political systems with radically simple beliefs, especially when they benefit the loyal to the exclusion of everyone else. People are not just ideological, she contends in this captivating extended essay; they are also practical, pragmatic, opportunist. The authoritarian and nationalist parties that have arisen within modern democracies offer new paths to wealth or power for their adherents. Describing politicians, journalists, intellectuals, and others who have abandoned democratic ideals in the UK, U.S., Spain, Poland, and Hungary, Applebaum reveals the patterns that link the new advocates of illiberalism and charts how they use conspiracy theory, political polarization, social media, and nostalgia to change their societies"--
Gulag : a history of the Soviet camps by Anne Applebaum( Book )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gulag entered the world's historical consciousness in 1972 with the publication of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's epic oral history of the Soviet camps, The Gulag Archipelago. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, dozens of memoirs and new studies covering aspects of that system have been published in Russia and the West. Using these new resources as well as her own original historical research, Ann Applebaum has now undertaken, for the first time, 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. The Gulag was first put in place in 1918 after the Russian Revolution. In 1929, Stalin personally decided to expand the camp system, both to use forced labor to accelerate Soviet industrialization and to exploit the natural resources of the country's barely inhabitable far northern regions. By the end of the 1930s, labor camps could be found in all twelve of the Soviet Union's time zones. The system continued to expand throughout the war years, reaching its height only in the early 1950s. From 1929 until the death of Stalin in 1953, some 18 million people passed through this massive system. Of these 18 million, it is estimated that 4.5 million never returned." "But the Gulag was not just an economic institution. It also became, over time, a country within a country, almost a separate civilization, with its own laws, customs, literature, folklore, slang, and morality. Topic by topic, Anne 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."--Jacket

20 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within a remarkably short period after the end of the war, Eastern Europe had been ruthlessly Stalinised. Iron Curtain is a brilliant history of a brutal period in European history, but also a reminder of how fragile free societies are, and how vulnerable they can be to the predations of determined and unscrupulous enemies."--Pub. desc

Der Eiserne Vorhang die Unterdrückung Osteuropas 1944 - 1956 by Anne Applebaum( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Der Gulag by Anne Applebaum( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gułag - nieludzki system represji, który stał się piekłem przeciwników, ofiar czystek i ludzi niewygodnych oraz zbędnych dla komunistycznej władzy. Jego przejmujący obraz stworzyli wielcy pisarze, m.in. Aleksander Sołżenicyn, Wiktor Szałamow, Gustaw Herling-Grudziński. W literaturze faktu opisała go Anne Applebaum w tej książce."Gułag" to znacznie więcej niż historia sowieckiego systemu obozów pracy, które powstały tuż po zwycięstwie rewolucji i rozrastały się gwałtownie wraz z dojściem Stalina do władzy (w tym czasie do obozów trafiło 18 milionów ludzi, 4,5 miliona nigdy z nich nie wróciło). To również opowieść o państwie w państwie, które rządziło się według własnych reguł i praw, które miało własny język, literaturę, orkiestry, teatry i własną niemoralną moralność. Anne Applebaum otwiera przed czytelnikami wszystkie, najbardziej nawet ukryte obszary funkcjonowania Gułagu i życia jego katów i ofiar. Opowiada zarówno o brawurowych ucieczkach i buntach, jak i o niewyobrażalnych karach, jakie spotkały ich uczestników. Oprowadza po świecie, który nigdy nie powinien istnieć, a przecież stał się nieludzkim domem dla niemal 30 milionów ludzi.

The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956 : an experiment in literary investigation by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this masterpiece, Solzhenitsyn has orchestrated thousands of incidents and individual histories into one narrative of unflagging power and momentum. Written in a tone that encompasses Olympian wrath, bitter calm, savage irony, and sheer comedy, it combines history, autobiography, documentary, and political analysis as it examines in its totality the Soviet apparatus of repression from its inception following the October Revolution of 1917. This first volume involves us in the innocent victim's arrest and preliminary detention and the stages by which he is transferred across the breadth of the Soviet Union to his ultimate destination: the hard labor camp."--Publisher's description

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In October 2006, Anna Politkovskaya was killed while working on an exposé of Chechnya's Russian-backed leader. Long hailed as "a lone voice crying out in a moral wilderness" ...

More recently, she turned to Vladimir Putin himself, focusing on the multiple threats his regime poses to Russian stability and on the state of terror that in the end cost Politkovskaya her life."--Back cover
Twilight of democracy : the seductive lure of authoritarianism by Anne Applebaum( )

6 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Pulitzer Prize-winning historian explains, with electrifying clarity, why elites in democracies around the world are turning toward nationalism and authoritarianism. From the United States and Britain to continental Europe and beyond, liberal democracy is under siege, while authoritarianism is on the rise. In Twilight of Democracy, Anne Applebaum, an award-winning historian of Soviet atrocities who was one of the first American journalists to raise an alarm about antidemocratic trends in the West, explains the lure of nationalism and autocracy. In this captivating essay, she contends that political systems with radically simple beliefs are inherently appealing, especially when they benefit the loyal to the exclusion of everyone else. Despotic leaders do not rule alone; they rely on political allies, bureaucrats, and media figures to pave their way and support their rule. The authoritarian and nationalist parties that have arisen within modern democracies offer new paths to wealth or power for their adherents. Applebaum describes many of the new advocates of illiberalism in countries around the world, showing how they use conspiracy theory, political polarization, social media, and even nostalgia to change their societies. Elegantly written and urgently argued, Twilight of Democracy is a brilliant dissection of a world-shaking shift and a stirring glimpse of the road back to democratic values
Should the West engage Putin's Russia? : Pozner and Cohen vs. Applebaum and Kasparov( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should the West deal with Putin's Russia' For the U.S. and some European powers the answer is obvious: isolate Russia with punishing economic sanctions, remove it from global institutions such as the G8, and arm the nations directly threatened by Putin. In short, return to the Cold War doctrine that froze Soviet aggression in Europe and helped bring about the collapse of communist Russia. Others argue that such a policy is a dead end. Putin's Russia has legitimate grievances against Western and NATO powers meddling in its sphere of influence. Instead of further antagonizing Putin and risking a dangerous escalation of the current conflict, the U.S. and Europe should seek common cause with Russia to address shared threats, from the Middle East to Asia to combatting terrorism. In the fifteenth semi-annual Munk Debate, acclaimed academic Stephen F. Cohen and veteran journalist and bestselling author Vladimir Poznar square off against internationally renowned expert on Russian history Anne Applebaum and Russian-born political dissident Garry Kasparov to debate the future of the West's relationship with Russia
