Gulag Administration

  • Edwin Bacon
Part of the Studies in Soviet History and Society book series


The aim of the present work is to bring to light from the archives of the former Soviet Union aspects of Gulag life and its organisation thus far unknown, by means of a detailed archive-based survey of the period covered by the Second World War. Following the historical and historiographical background presented in the opening chapters, the war years now become our focus.
