Offers a 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. This study makes an important historical contribution to our understanding of forced labour in the Soviet Union and its enduring legacy.
