from d/j:
This is a courageous and dramatic account of the extraordinary experiences of a leader of the Soviet dissident movement. Andrei Amalrik was a non-conformist whose unrelenting criticism of repression, inertia and backwardness in Soviet society made him the constant target of harassment and persecution. He writes here, in vivid detail, a frank account of his last eight years with other dissidents, with the KGB, with Western correspondents, and his dissident activities - culminating in the Western publication of a book which infuriated Soviet officials and led to his arrest and trial, imprisonment in Siberia, internal exile, and, finally, the harrowing events precipitating his emigration.

NOTES OF A REVOLUTIONARY is a fascinating cultural account of a period, from 1968 to 1976, when forces of democracy and dissent came into inexorable conflict with the Soviet state. It is also a moving personal memoir, a unique testament to a personal quest for liberty and intellectual freedom. Please click here to ask a question
