The legacy of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn; The human cost of unemployment, Part I

On this episode of Radio Free Acton, John Couretas, Acton’s director of communications, talks with Daniel J. Mahoney, professor of political science at Assumption College, about the legacy of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in light of Solzhenitsyn’s memoir recently released in English, “Between Two Millstones Book I: Sketches of Exile,” the first of two books in which Solzhenitsyn recounts his exile in the West. Afterwards, reporter Anne Marie Schieber takes us on the first of a three-part series exploring the difficulty of unemployment.
