Contents Summary
"Notes of a Revolutionary describes Amalrik's last ten years in Russia, and was completed just before his tragic death in an automobile accident in Spain in 1980. It begins with his participation in the nascent human rights movement which gained international recognition after a demonstration in Pushkin Square against the trial of the writers Andrei Sinyavsky and Yuri Daniel in 1965. Amalrik explains how he was plunged into the Moscow intellectual circle that gathered around Andrei Sakharov and other leading dissidents against the Soviet regime. He became one of the movement's chief contacts with Western journalists--about whom he sometimes wrote scathingly--and helped publicize the harassment, arrests, and detention of many of these men and women, And he portrays a murky world of informers, and double agents, of venal officials and the KGB, as well as the internal rivalries among the dissidents"--publisher
