Abstract
 
Description
“The story of Medvedev’s own hospitalization and the efforts of his twin brother to secure his release are sensitively chronicled in this dramatic hour-by-hour account of the nineteen days that began with an ominous knock on the door, and ended―or did it? ―with Zhores’s conditional release. The format of the book is brilliantly conceived, taking the form of a dual autobiographical account, with alternate chapters by each of the brothers Medvedev.” ―Alan M. Dershowitz, New York Times Book Review Zhores Medvedev, a Soviet biochemist and outspoken critic of the Soviet bureaucracy, who was railroaded into a mental hospital, and his brother, historian Roy Medvedev, who rallied the Soviet scientific and intellectual community in protest, together tell the story of “repression by psychiatry” in Russia today. - from Amzon
