Overall good condition. ; In Januray 1963 thirty-two siberian Chritians invaded the United States Embassy in Moscow in an unsuccessful bid to escape Soviet religious persecution. When he went to Russia to investigate this tragedy, J. C. Pollock disovered it to be symptomatic of far wider suffering; the Siberians were fragments thrown up by a conflict which gathers momentum right across the USSF. He graphically describes not only the story of the Thirty-two, but the confrontation between an increasingly vigorous Christianity and atheism heavily backed by the Soviet State which, for all its claims of freedom of conscience, is determined to eradicate religion and has tightened the screw in the past two years. The importance of this book lies in its being based on firm evidence, froma ll over the Soviet Union; and it its extreme topicality: the account is taken well into 1964. It will interest everyone who cares about human suffering, whose heart warms to the triumph of the human spirit in adversity. ; 6" x 9"; 190 pages
