Product description


Management consultant and student of maritime history Bollinger has written a valuable book on the maritime transportation system that Stalin used to send tens of thousands of Soviet citizens to the Kolyma prison camps. In clear and concise prose, he describes not only how Stalin supplied the Gulag camps of northeastern Siberia with forced labor, but also how the European and US governments acquiesced in this slave trade and actually built or refurbished many of the ships in Stalin's fleet....Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --Choice


"Bollinger tells a fascinating tale about one of the more sordid chapters in the history of Stalin's forced labor empire. The book should also be read for its lessons about the West's inadvertent complicity in this sorry saga." (David Schimmelpenninck van der Oye^LBrock University^Lauthor, ^IToward the Rising Sun: Russian Ideologies of Empire and the Path to War with Japan^R)

"An ingenious use of neglected sources to shed new light on the workings of Stalin's labor camp system." (David Stone^Lauthor of ^IHammer and Rifle: The Militarization of the Soviet Union, 1926-1933^R) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
