315 Administrative Supervision in the USSR: A Case Study * Robert Guttman Member of the New York State Bar A Political Spectre . By now, Anatoly Marchenko has completed a four-year exile for a violation of the rules of administrative supervision. According to a report received during the final months of his exile, the authorities intend to bring a new case against Marchenko.' I As the author of My Testimony, a haunting personal account of post-Stalinist labor camps and prisons, Marchenko provided Soviet prisoners of conscience, as well as other prisoners, with a document substantiating to the world their mis- treatment.' Although he was never specifically tried for writing My Testimony, his best known criticism of Soviet society, Marchenko has sacrificed 15 of his last 20 years in prison, labor camps, and exile.3 3 This article analyzes the basis for the imposition of an administrative supervi- sion. The facts are based almost entirely on an unofficial samizdat (literally "self-publication") transcript." The anonymous authors of samizdat also re- searched the fundamental law on administrative supervision and applied it to the facts they reported.' The legal analysis expressed here draws on samizdat's core research. The reader might be tempted to
