This landmark book uncovers for the first time in detail one of the
greatest horrors of the twentieth century: the vast system of
Soviet camps that were responsible for the deaths of countless
millions. Gulag is the only major history in any language to draw
together the mass of memoirs and writings on the Soviet camps that
have been published in Russia and the West. Using these, as well as
her own original research in NKVD archives and interviews with
survivors, Anne Applebaum has written a fully documented history of
the camp system: from its origins under the tsars, to its colossal
expansion under Stalin's reign of terror, its zenith in the late
1940s and eventual collapse in the era of glasnost. It is a
gigantic feat of investigation, synthesis and moral reckoning.
