On that same day, a brilliant mathematician is locked away inside a Moscow prison that houses the country's brightest minds. He and his fellow prisoners are charged with using their abilities to sleuth out the caller's identity, and they must choose whether to aid Joseph Stalin's repressive state<U+2014>or refuse and accept transfer to the Siberian Gulag camps . . . and almost certain death. First written between 1955 and 1958. In order to pass through Soviet censors, many essential scenes<U+2014>including nine full chapters<U+2014>were cut or altered before it was published in a hastily translated English edition in 1968. Now with the help of the author's most trusted translator, Harry T. Willetts, here for the first time is the complete, definitive English edition
1920 Diary by I Babelʹ( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Russian writer Isaac Babel (1894-1940) is widely acknowledged to be one of the great masters of twentieth-century literature, hailed as a genius by such critics as Lionel Trilling and Irving Howe. The work for which he is best known is a cycle of stories called Red Cavalry, which depicts the exploits of the Cossack cavalry during the Polish-Soviet war of 1919-1920 and is based on Babel's experiences as he rode with the Cossacks during the campaign. Throughout this period Babel kept a diary, in which he recorded the devastation of the war, the extreme cruelty of the Polish and Red armies alike toward the Jewish population in Ukraine and eastern Poland, and his own conflicted role as both Soviet revolutionary and Jew. The 1920 Diary, a vital source for Red Cavalry as well as a compelling narrative, is now published in English for the first time

August 1914 by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this monumental narrative of the outbreak of World War I and the ill-fated Russian offensive into East Prussia, the author has written "a dramatically new interpretation of Russian history." From the alternating viewpoints of all involved, August 1914 reconstructs the assassination of the tsarist prime minister Pyotr Stolypin, a crucial event in the years leading up to the Revolution of 1917. Stolypin, the sole voice of reason among the advisers to Tsar Nikolai II, died at the hands of the anarchist Dmitri Bogrov, and with him perished Russia's last hope for reform. The first "knot" in Solzhenitsyn's multipart epic, The Red Wheel, August 1914 is a major work from the Russian Nobelist, back in part for the centenary of World War I and of the beginnings of the Russian Revolution
