Sinopsis: Temperamentally and intellectually, Natan Sharansky is a man very much like many of us—which makes this account of his arrest on political grounds, his trial, and ten years' imprisonment in the Orwellian universe of the Soviet gulag particularly vivid and resonant.
Since Fear No Evil was originally published in 1988, the Soviet government that imprisoned Sharansky has collapsed. Sharansky has become an important national leader in Israel—and serves as Israel's diplomatic liaison to the former Soviet Union! New York Times Jerusalem Bureau Chief Serge Schmemann reflects on those monumental events, and on Sharansky's extraordinary life in the decades since his arrest, in a new introduction to this edition. But the truths Sharansky learned in his jail cell and sets forth in this book have timeless importance so long as rulers anywhere on earth still supress their own peoples. For anyone with an interest in human rights—and anyone with an appreciation for the resilience of the human spirit—he illuminates the weapons with which the powerless can humble the powerful: physical courage, an untiring sense of humor, a bountiful imagination, and the conviction that "Nothing they do can humiliate me. I alone can humiliate myself."
Sinopsis: Renowned for his defiance of the Kremlin, the author writes of his nine years as a KGB prisoner describing how he refused to be humiliated when the KGB did everything to break him. The narrative begins with his arrest on a Moscow street in March 1977 at the age of 29. Sharansky tells of his sixteen months under interrogation on a capital charge of treason as a team of KGB officers amassed more than fifty volumes of "evidence" to prove that he was an American spy, a charge that was fundamentally false. He writes of his subsequent trial and his reaction to a sentence of thirteen years. In the end he relates his growing elation as he realizes that his release and reunion with his wife is imminent. Sharantsky was in the mid-1970s a spokesman for Moscow's dissidents and the human rights activists, like Andrei Sakarov.
