Temperamentally and  intellectually,  Natan Sharansky  is  a  man very much like many of us — which  makes  this account of  his arrest on political grounds, his  trial,  and  ten  years’  imprisonment  in  the  Orwellian  universe of  the  Soviet  gulag  particularly vivid  and  resonant.

Since Fear No Evil was originally published in 1988, the Soviet government that imprisoned Sharansky has collapsed. Sharansky has become an important national leader in Israel—and serves as Israel’s diplomatic liaison to the former Soviet Union.

New York Times Jerusalem Bureau Chief Serge Schmemann reflects on those monumental events, and on Sharansky’s extraordinary life in the decades since his arrest, in a new introduction to this edition. But the truths Sharansky learned in his jail cell and sets forth in this book have timeless importance so long as rulers anywhere on earth still supress their own peoples.

For anyone with an interest in human rights—and anyone with an appreciation for the resilience of the human spirit—he illuminates the weapons with which the powerless can humble the powerful: physical courage, an untiring sense of humor, a bountiful imagination, and the conviction that “Nothing they do can humiliate me. I alone can humiliate myself.
