About Vladimir Bukovsky

Vladimir Bukovsky was one of the founders of the dissident movement in the USSR which began in the fall of 1960 on Moscow’s Mayakovsky Square. He spent 12 years in prisons and psychiatric hospitals, was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1976, and has been at the forefront of opposition to the overwhelmingly powerful state. Mr. Bukovsky first exposed the use of psychiatry against Soviet political prisoners and wrote about his time in a succession of Soviet jails, gulags and lockups, His landmark book, To Build a Castle: My Life as a Dissenter (1979), is one of the 20th century's great memoirs. He is also the author of Soul of Man Under Socialism (1979), and Soviet Hypocrisy and Western Gullibility (1987). Settled in Cambridge, England, since 1976, he is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute. In recent years he has repeatedly called for Russian liberals to stand up to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s unconstitutional behavior. Mr. Bukovsky’s friend, Alexander Litvinenko, calls him ‘a shining light in a darkening world’.
