Dave Crouch on Solzhenitsyn

A good obituary in this weeks Socialist Worker of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, which manages to get the tricky but necessary balance of praise and criticism about right, and ends 'we must reject Solzhenitsyn the prophet – but celebrate him as a witness to Stalin’s crimes and the voice of his victims'.

[This weeks paper incidently also clearly explains what the hell is happening over in the Caucasus, which is useful for those of us who, unlike the likes of Lenin, haven't been good enough Marxists to make time to find out for ourselves...see also Seamus Milne]
