On the cover of the hardcover edition of The Gulag Archipelago there is the following quote that I have always found interesting.
For years I have with reluctant heart withheld from publication this already completed book; my obligation to those still living outweighed my obligation to the dead. But now that State Security has seized the book anyway, I have no alternative but to publish it immediately. -The authorI have an extra paperback copy of this book. The first person that emails me, and says the want the book, can have it. (for free) As soon as someone has taken the book I will post a comment in my journal that the book is taken so that there is not duplicative request.
