Paul Gregory’s collection of stories brings to life the true-life stories of five women victimized by Stalin’s Gulag—often in their own words—and adds to the literature a long-missing perspective: what women endured during this tragic era of Soviet history. Gregory introduces these stories with decrees from Stalin’s Kremlin office that introduced a reign of terror on his victims, most of whom were ordinary people.
Paul Gregory directs the Workshop on Totalitarian Regimes at the Hoover Institution, where he is a research fellow. He is also the Cullen Distinguished Professor of Economics at the University of Houston.
