Book Overview

Alexander Solzhenitsyn's Warning to the West includes the texts of the Nobel Prize-winning author's three speeches in the United States in the summer of 1975, his first major public addresses since his expulsion from the Soviet Union in 1974: on June 30 and July 9 to trade-union leaders of the AFL-CIO in Washington, D.C., and in New York City, and on July 15 to the United States Congress; and also the texts of his BC interview and radio speech, which sparked widespread public controversy when they were aired in London in March 1976.

Solzhenitsyn's outspoken criticism of the West's growing weakness and complacency and his belief that Russia's growing strength will enable her to establish supremacy over the West without risk of a nucelar holocaust are expressed with the moral authority of a great novelist and historian.

Solzhenitsyn mounts a public indictment of the supine inattention of the West that rings like the blows of the hammer with which Luther nailed his manifesto to the doors at Wittenberg.--Times Literary Supplement

   The clock of history
For most of my sixty years, I have been a voracious reader, and this is quite likely the most profound, most prescient book I have ever read. As Mr. Solzhenitsyn puts it so eloquently :... several hours have struck on the clock of history simultaneously. I believe that this should be a must read for anyone who thinks they know what freedom is or would like to learn about life without it.

   Listen to him!
He is not with us anymore, but like most really great authors, he still talks from his grave to us. In my country, they used to say that the revolution is like a callous, they feel it only when they step on it. That is what always happens in communist societies. You may be the best comrade of them all, but as soon as the revolution takes something away from you, you become a contra. People don 't read and are therefore ignorant of history. Because history repeats ALWAYS itself.

   A man ahead of his time
This collection of speeches shows the speaker to be a prophetic man before his time. His words could not be more true than they are today. One example... Europe today? It is nothing more than a collection of cardboard backdrops, all negotiating with each other to see how little can be spent on defense to leave more for the comfort of life. This is well worth the read for any American concerned about what is happening within our borders through the progressive and communist leaning administration and leadership in 2021.
