Book Review: “To Build A Castle” by Vladimir Bukovsky

Life as a dissident in Soviet Russia

Book Review by Emma San Martin


Emma San Martin, Layout Editor

This quick video is a book review of To Build a Castle, a groundbreaking memoir by Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky.  The book is now out of print and is very difficult to find, but it is a highly recommended read for anyone interested in global politics, human psychology, communist regimes, prison survival tips, or simply a good adventure story (It’s all true).  Mr. Bukovsky is currently a member of the International Council of the Human Rights Foundation, and a fellow of the Cato Institute.

Note: The video’s soundtrack and all of the pictures except for the photographs and Soviet star were created by me.  If you’d like to use the video for anything, please email me first:  [email protected]
