Summary:
"Millions of Soviet citizens were executed and millions perished in the slave labor camps of the Gulag. This book describes the fate of those citizens who were declared enemies of the people not because of what they had done but because of who they were. Stalin's repression prevented the development of a civil society in the Soviet Union"-- Provided by publisher.
