This book, the most comprehensive look so far at dissidence in the Soviet Union, is a well-written summary account of the Moscow human rights movement, from the era of the post-Stalinist reforms through Andrei Sakharov’s internal exile in 1980 to the industrial city of Gorki. Joshua Rubenstein makes excellent use of most of the primary and secondary accounts of this topic. He supplements here the many first-hand anguished accounts by numerous dissidents now available in English.
