Dateline Freedom

Front Cover
Hutchinson, 1991 - Crime - 210 pages
Vitali's fearless journalism made him a national hero in the USSR, as well as a sitting target for the criminals he has helped to convict. In this book he investigates the continuing miscarriages of justice - punitive psychiatry, labour camps, rampant anti-semitism, lack of food, violence in the Baltic Republics - with the contention that it is still the same corrupt communist system, just under a new dictator, Gorbachev.
