Since the publication in 1968 of his first book, "Progress, Coexistence, and Intellectual Freedom", the famed Russian theoretical physicist Andrei Sakharov has emerged as a figure of uncompromising independence and moral integrity. Though he has received more honors than almost any man in the Soviet Union for his contributions to the creation of Russia's hydrogen bomb, Sakharov has, in a long series of pronouncements, challenged his government, stimulated the world's conscience, and, according to The New York Times, become Russia's "best-known advocate of human rights."« less
