The classic 1940s left expose of Stalin's labour camps, Forced Labour in Soviet Russia, by the Menshevik intellectuals David Dallin and Boris Nicolaevsky, published in 1948 and relied upon by every writer on Soviet slave labour up to and including Anne Applebaum in her recent (and excellent) account of the gulag, should now be available to download as a PDF from the web – from a US site devoted to the works of the eccentric conservative publisher Henry Regnery – for which click here. The problem is that the download doesn't work although other goodies from the same site – a cornucopia of "god that failed" polemics — work fine. Ho hum.
