Abstract:

This book encompasses Gregory?s expansive research on the little-known women victims of the Gulag (Stalin?s vast network of forced labor camps and settlements for families) and reveals just how far-reaching and frightening the Gulag was. The volume begins with Stalin?s rise to power, the roots of the Gulag, and the scheming and plotting that led to and persisted in one of the bloodiest, most egregious dictatorships of the twentieth century. In researching the memoirs and oral reminiscences of five women who were victimized in the Gulag, Gregory has stitched together stories from the female perspective, a view in short supply in the literature. Capturing the fear, paranoia, and unbearable hardships that were the hallmarks of Stalin?s Great Terror, Gregory relates the stories of these five women?from different social strata and regions?in vivid prose, from their pre-Gulag lives, through their struggles to survive in the repressive atmosphere of the late 1930s and early 1940s, to the difficulties facing the four who survived as they adjusted to life after the Gulag. --Publisher's website.
