I am a little puzzled over the self-designation as a "Stalinist." We usually refer to Stalinists as the persons who were part of the terror machine impossed by Stalin. A scientist, who lived and worked under such system but did not participate in administrating such terror was not a Stalinist even if he believed in communism.

This is my personal view, or rather a request for an explaination.

I have read Błażyński's book "Mówi Józef Swiatło." Światło was a Stalinist, a dispicable one, and I would have a hard time in grouping these two men together.

If I read the book in the OP, will I be likely to change my mind?

No doubt it this would be a good read and not often we get a professor of Nuclear Physics posting here. I think the tittle is to grab the poptential reader's attention - which it does.

I'm going to order it and I wish JP would too as he has written some very good essays in the past so he would do it justice as a reviewer. The book is only 12 bucks and the :

Royalties will be donated to a Montclair State University scholarship fund.

We are not a very serious bunch here so I am not surprised he hasn't come back.
