Advocacy as History? That Takes the Prize!

Neacsu, Elena Dana

"Gulag: A History", the recipient of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for general non-fiction, may be particularly well received by lawyers and law students because they can appreciate author Anne Applebaum's writing skills. Gulag reads like a lawyer's product: a conclusion replete with facts and arguments. Those who enjoy perfecting their legal skills while reading for pleasure should read this review. Gulag is, in essence, a successful legal brief.
