From the Editor's Preface: Boomerang is a story of Valentyn Moroz, a young history instructor at a teacher's college in Ivano-Frankivsk, a city in Western Ukraine with a population of under ninety thousand. At one point in this young man's life he began to realize that he and those around him were being spiritually robbed of dignity and freedom as human beings, of culture and tradition as national beings, Ukrainians. His stand on principle cost him dearly, for from 1965 until, ironically, 1984, not counting nine months of unemployment between terms of imprisonment, he will have spent eighteen of the most productive years of a man's life behind bars, barbed wire, or in exile. The story of Valentyn Moroz wil unfold by itself through materials and documents that have reached the West.
