The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956: pt. 1. The prison industry by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn Summary

"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.

The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Summary

The Gulag Archipelago is Solzhenitsyn's masterwork, a vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators and also of heroism, a Stalinist anti-world at the heart of the Soviet Union where the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair. The work is based on the testimony of some two hundred survivors, and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn's own eleven years in labour camps and exile. It is both a thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power. This edition has been abridged into one volume at the author's wish and with his full co-operation.

The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956 by Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn Summary

The Gulag Archipelago is Solzhenitsyn's attempt to compile a literary-historical record of the vast system of prisons and labor camps that came into being shortly after the Bolsheviks seized power in Russia in 1917 and that underwent an enormous expansion during the rule of Stalin from 1924 to 1953. Various sections of the three volumes describe the arrest, interrogation, conviction, transportation, and imprisonment of the Gulag's victims by Soviet authorities over four decades. The work mingles historical exposition and Solzhenitsyn's own autobiographical accounts with the voluminous personal testimony of other inmates that he collected and committed to memory during his imprisonment.Upon publication of the first volume of The Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn was immediately attacked in the Soviet press. Despite the intense interest in his fate that was shown in the West, he was arrested and charged with treason on February 12, 1974, and was exiled from the Soviet Union the following day.

pt. 5. Katorga. pt. 6. Exile. pt. 7. Stalin is no more by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn Summary

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 labour 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.

Par-delà le bien et le mal by Friedrich Nietzsche Summary

Edition enrichie (introduction, notes, chronologie et bibliographie) Le problème de la valeur du vrai s'est présenté à nous, - ou bien est-ce nous qui nous sommes présentés à ce problème ? Qui de nous ici est Oedipe ? Qui la Sphinx ? C'est, comme il semble, un véritable rendez-vous de problèmes et de questions. - Et, le croirait-on ? Il me semble, en fin de compte, que le problème n'a jamais été posé jusqu'ici, que nous avons été les premiers à l'apercevoir, à l'envisager, à prendre le risque de le traiter. Car il y a des risques à courir, et peut-être n'en est-il pas de plus grands. Friedrich Nietzsche. C'est d'abord à une radicale remise en question de la vérité que procède Nietzsche dans Par-delà le bien et le mal (1886). Ce texte d'une écriture étincelante, férocement critique, met en effet au jour, comme un problème majeur jusque-là occulté, inaperçu, celui de la valeur. Il y destitue les positions philosophiques passées et présentes (autant de croyances), et stigmatise, en les analysant un à un, l'ensemble des préjugés moraux qui sous-tendent notre civilisation. L'entreprise, pourtant, n'est pas uniquement négative : elle débouche sur l'annonce, dans le prolongement d'Ainsi parlait Zarathoustra, de « nouveaux philosophes » - « philosophes d'un dangereux peut-être » qui devront désormais assumer l'inflexible hypothèse de la vie comme « volonté de puissance ».

A new and chilling study of lethal human exploitation in the Soviet forced labor camps, one of the pillars of Stalinist terror In a shocking new study of life and death in Stalin’s Gulag, historian Golfo Alexopoulos suggests that Soviet forced labor camps were driven by brutal exploitation and often administered as death camps.

Former Communists by Source Wikipedia Summary

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 54. Chapters: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Andre Gide, Arthur Koestler, Bella Dodd, David Horowitz, Dmitriy Kuz'min-Karavaev, Douglas Hyde (author), Elizabeth Bentley, Ignazio Silone, James Larkin, Jerry Rubin, John Zerzan, Joseph Zack Kornfeder, Liam O'Flaherty, Max Eastman, Ronald Radosh, Stephen Spender, Whittaker Chambers, Will Herberg, Yevgeny Zamyatin. Excerpt: Alexander Isayevich Solzhenitsyn (; Russian: , pronounced; 11 December 1918 - 3 August 2008) was a Russian writer, dissident and activist. He helped to raise global awareness of the gulag and the Soviet Union's forced labor camp system from 1918 to 1956. While his writings were often suppressed, he wrote several books most notably The Gulag Archipelago and One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, two of his best-known works. "For the ethical force with which he has pursued the indispensable traditions of Russian literature," Solzhenitsyn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970. He was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974 but returned to Russia in 1994 after the Soviet system had collapsed. Alexander Solzhenitsyn was born in Kislovodsk, RSFSR (now in Stavropol Krai, Russia). His mother, Taisiya Solzhenitsyna (nee Shcherbak) was Ukrainian. Her father had apparently risen from humble beginnings, as something of a self-made man. Eventually, he acquired a large estate in the Kuban region in the northern foothills of the Caucasus. During World War I, Taisiya went to Moscow to study. While there she met and married Isaakiy Solzhenitsyn, a young officer in the Imperial Russian Army of Cossack origins and fellow native of the Caucasus region. The family background of his parents is vividly brought to life in the opening chapters of August 1914, and in the later Red Wheel novels. In 1918, Taisia became pregnant with Alexander. Shortly after her pregnancy was...

Le Mur de Berlin by Frederick Taylor Summary

L’apparition d’une clôture de barbelés dressée en hâte en plein cœur de Berlin durant la nuit du 12 au 13 août 1961 fut un moment aussi tragique qu’inattendu. En l’espace de quelques jours, elle se transforma en une structure imposante qui en viendrait à symboliser la folie brutale de la guerre froide : le Mur de Berlin. Frederick Taylor livre le récit saisissant du conflit politique de l’après-guerre à l’origine du drame d’une Allemagne divisée. D’abord cette ville de près de quatre millions d’habitants, puis le pays entier, furent cruellement coupés en deux, déclenchant une crise potentielle catastrophique entre l’Est et l’Ouest. Pour la première fois, le monde entier fut confronté à la menace d’une apocalypse nucléaire imminente. Cette peur dura jusqu’au jour où ceux-là même que le Mur avait emprisonnés y ouvrirent les premières brèches, en cette incroyable nuit du 9 novembre 1989... Tissant ensemble tout à la fois l’histoire officielle, ses recherches dans les archives et de bouleversants récits personnels, Le Mur de Berlin est une remarquable fresque historique et humaine, à l’époque où le monde semblait au bord du gouffre.
