Abstract:

Baran offers a compelling history of how a small, American-based religious community, the Jehovah's Witnesses, found its way into the Soviet Union after World War II, survived decades of fierce persecution, and emerged as one of the region's fastest growing religions after the Soviet Union's collapse in 1991. Through the story of this marginal, often misunderstood faith, this book explores the shifting boundaries of religious dissent, non-conformity, and human rights in the Soviet Union and the successor states of Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova.
