SYNOPSIS: 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. Quantity Available: 1.
