Summary: "In this fascinating book Alan Barenberg explores the myriad personal and economic links that tied the labor camp complex of Vorkuta to the emerging civilian mining town, and he shows how, after Stalin, the town was able to draw on its camp legacy by offering an important space for former inmates to be reabsorbed into Soviet society."- Yoram Gorlizki, University of Manchester.

Inhaltsangabe: This insightful volume offers a radical reassessment of the infamous “Gulag Archipelago? by exploring the history of Vorkuta, an arctic coal-mining outpost originally established in the 1930s as a prison camp complex. Author Alan Barenberg?s eye-opening study reveals Vorkuta as an active urban center with a substantial nonprisoner population where the borders separating camp and city were contested and permeable, enabling prisoners to establish social connections that would eventually aid them in their transitions to civilian life. With this book, Barenberg makes an important historical contribution to our understanding of forced labor in the Soviet Union and its enduring legacy.
Über den Autor: Alan Barenberg is assistant professor of history at Texas Tech University. He lives in Lubbock, TX.
