    I read this book some years ago and it had a profound effect on me - it's a very important work, everybody should read it. I was reminded of it a few weeks ago whilst watching a TV programme about Kolyma and the Road of Bones, and wanted to read it again. The only reasonably priced copy was available from a seller in the US. The book arrived promptly and, although used, was as described and in good shape.

    This is a Monumental work by a Monumental Writer. With a Surgeons meticulousness of dissection, Solzhenitsyn lays bare the entire anatomy of the Oppressive apparatus, laying bare the workings at an Ideological, state and individual level. He uses hundreds of examples of individuals and groups of individuals experiences of the Soviet oppressive 'Organs' to create a vast network of suffering interlinked by time, place and person.It is an unrelenting and heavy read. It demands by the nature of its grave subject deliberation and slow digestion.The Soviet process of arrest, interrogation charge and sentencing are each painstakingly laid out. The Politicohistorical background of the (in)justice system is similarly dissected apart with reference to historical events.It is dry writing, blisteringly sarcastic with an understanding sympathy for the forces of oppression that is unrelentingly ironic.It is an extraordinary piece of work, immense in scope, rich in ironic understatement that can leave the reader exhausted. Stunningly detailed, and essential reading for any serious student of the Soviet era.
