1973: The Gulag Archipelago by Alexander Solzhenitsyn


The Gulag Archipelago was published many years ago today:
"Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's "literary investigation" of the police-state system in the Soviet Union, The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956, is published in the original Russian in Paris. The book was the first of the three-volume work. The brutal and uncompromising description of political repression and terror was quickly translated into many languages and was published in the United States just a few months later."
It is a very difficult book to read but worth the effort.  The USSR died in 1992 but we can not forget what was done in the name of communism.
