This engrossing collection of prison memoirs by Russian women is the first to portray the direct experiences of the wide range of women who were incarcerated in Soviet prisons and camps. Comprising the stories of women from all classes and backgrounds, this book covers the entire span of the Gulag's existence from the 1920s to the 1980s, including the little-known periods of political repression of the 1960s and 1980s.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This collection of memoirs and letters from the gulags will prove to be of great interest to scholars working on the Stalin era and for students who are interested in the terror. . . . This is a highly satisfactory book that anyone teaching Soviet history should read. * The Russian Review *
A major contribution to the literature on the Soviet women's history and on the outrages of the Stalin period. The excerpts are eloquent, the writers memorable. Even those well acquainted with the horrors of the Stalin years will find themselves shaken by this array of needless tragedies. * Feminist Formations *
The collection is well introduced, meticulously footnoted, and skillfully translated. . . . All the accounts are compelling. * CHOICE *
