Notes of a Revolutionary

By Andrei Amalrik

Knopf, 1982, 343 pp.

An engaging personal memoir covering the dissident historian's life and persecution in Russia during the 1960s and 1970s. He describes his unending struggle against the system: encounters with the KGB, prison and labor camp experiences, contacts with Western correspondents, episodes of daily life. Written in the West after he was exiled in 1976, the book is published now following his untimely death.
