BEST NONFICTION BOOK OF THE TH CENTURY TimeVolume of the gripping epic masterpiece Solzhenitsyn's chilling report of his arrest and interrogation which exposed to the world the vast bureaucracy of secret police that haunted Soviet society F. A must read for those of us raised in comfort A reminder that life needn t be and through most of human history wasn t so comfortable It is a reminder of the dangers posed by Authoritarianism and a lesson that evil is not out there somewhere lurking in a foreign land but swirling amidst the good in the heart of every man The vagaries of fate and disposition can leave any man as either executor or executed or both at different timesA few uotesIf only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart During the life of any heart this line keeps changing place sometimes it is sueezed one way by exuberant evil and sometimes it shifts to allow enough space for good to flourish One and the same human being is at various ages under various circumstances a totally different human being At times he is close to being a devil at times to sainthood But his name doesn t change and to that name we ascribe the whole lot good and evil Socrates taught us Know thyself Confronted by the pit into which we are about to toss those who have done us harm we halt stricken dumb it is after all only because of the way things worked out that they were the executioners and we weren t Ideology that is what gives evildoing its long sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others eyes so that he won t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors That was how the agents of the Inuisition fortified their wills by invoking Christianity the conuerors of foreign lands by extolling the grandeur of their Motherland the colonizers by civilization the Nazis by race and the Jacobins early and late by euality brotherhood and the happiness of future generations Thanks to ideology the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions This cannot be denied nor passed over nor suppressed There is a simple truth which one can learn only through suffering in war not victories are blessed but defeats Governments need victories and the people need defeats Victory gives rise to the desire for victories But after a defeat it is freedom that men desire and usually attain A people needs defeat just as an individual needs suffering and misfortune they compel the deepening of the inner life and generate a spiritual upsurge

    Talk about an eye opening experience How did we not learn any of this in school? Shame The imagery of the sewer system flushing the perceived worthlessness of life is a heartbreaking one I'm a third of the way through the book It's hard to read but entirely necessary.

    This one is going on my list of books everyone should read The extent to which Stalin's regime subjugated his people is unbelievable.

    Not much to say about the book contents as the book series is obviously a brilliant classic that everyone ought to read, but the print is good, the covers are OK, albeit a little flimsy, but you get what you pay for, so for the price, completely sufficient, in my opinion.
