Solzhenitsyn's first book, this economical, relentless novel is one of the most forceful artistic indictments of political oppression in the Stalin-era Soviet Union. The simply told story of a typical, grueling day of the titular character's life in a labor camp in Siberia, is a modern classic of Russian literature and quickly cemented Solzhenitsyn's international reputation upon publication in 1962. It is painfully apparent that Solzhenitsyn himself spent time in the gulags--he was imprisoned for nearly a decade as punishment for making derogatory statements about Stalin in a letter to a friend. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Any person who believes in moral relativism, cannot be said to have thoroughly considered his/her position, without first reading this book, because here is a non-fictional society built on moral relativism: whoever holds the power, makes the rules.
If you like this book, try the Cancer Ward and the books he wrote about WW1 on the Eastern Front. Powerful stuff.
