Summary
The birth of the dissident movement, early samizdat, the dispute between Sakharov and Solzhenitsyn, the ordeals of Jewish refuseniks and the escapades of "bulldozer" artists - the biography of the scientist and human rights activist Alexander Goldfarb is closely connected with the most important events of the Cold War. His memoirs read not only as a valuable testimony to Soviet life, but also like an action-packed novel: the narrative centers on the KGB's attempts to identify sources of information leaks about a secret biological weapons program. Carefully restoring all the fragments of this intricate history, the author simultaneously subjects deep reflection to the fate of several generations of his family and circle of peers, as well as his own relations with the Soviet state.
