«There is only one place in Russia where a person can say everything, as guaranteed by the Constitution, without censorship. That place is the courtroom, the last word before the verdict, right before the handcuffs and prison. Apparently, judges and secret police think, "Since we're going to jail them anyway, let them speak." The texts in this book are unique: almost all of their authors are incarcerated. Paying with their freedom for our right to read this.»
