Abstract

197 apparatus in all of world history, forcing it before the collective tribunal and judgment of mankind; he has also succeeded in once again focusing world attention on the most crucial issues in the world communist movement-issues which, especially since the death of Togliatti, Moscow has done its best to bury. Perhaps most important, especially in this day of Solzhenitsyn has forced us to take another look at that "charming meadow"-to quote from his Nobel Lecture-which we have persisted in seeing for so long when dealing with the orbis sovieticus; he has reminded us that the "improbable salamander," to which he likens the Gulag Archipelago, "is still alive."
