Summary/Abstract: Soviet dissidence in its golden years, 1965-1982, was one of the most interesting episodes of the Post Stalin regime in Soviet Union. With a wide range of manifestations form literary dissidence to the movement of human rights, Soviet dissidence played an important role not only in denouncing the abuses of power but also in forging new thinking models at society level. Focusing on R.S.F.S.R human right movement, the article defines concepts such as dissidence-dissident, emphasizes the types of dissident activity and portrays some of the emblematic figures of Soviet dissidence.
