Summary
"The notorious Soviet Gulag gets a radical reinterpretation in this remarkable work of cutting-edge history. By examining the history of Vorkuta, an Arctic coal-mining outpost established in the 1930s as a prison camp complex, Alan Barenberg's insightful study tests the idea that the Gulag was an 'archipelago' separated from Soviet society at large"--Cover
