Roy Aleksandrovich Medvedev (Russian: Рой Алекса́ндрович Медве́дев; born 14 November 1925) is a Russian political writer, author of the dissident history of Stalinism, Let History Judge (Russian: К суду истории), first published in English in 1972. Medvedev was born in Tbilisi, Georgia. He has an identical twin brother, the biologist Zhores Medvedev.

By Harrison E. Salisbury. Roy Medvedev and his twin brother, Zhores Medvedev, are two of the most unusual men in the Soviet Union. I put down Roy A. Medvedev's book with the same feeling of glazed horror that comes when reading of a tidal wave in West Bengal, an earthquake in the interior of Turkey or a cholera epidemic in preCommunist China. Sons of the Marxist philosopher, Alexander Romanovich Medvedev, who was executed in the 1938 purges, they are scientists and scholars with strong social consciences.

Let History Judge: The Origins and Consequences of Stalinism is Roy Medvedev’s magnum opus, and perhaps the most popular and highly praised biography of Josef Stalin and his era of totalitarian rule. It has not disappointed me. Exhaustive and I'm pretty sure impartial (hard for me to tell since I don't speak Russian).

Zhores Aleksandrovich Medvedev (Russian: Жоре́с Алекса́ндрович Медве́дев; 14 November 1925 – 15 November 2018) was a Russian agronomist, biologist, historian and dissident. His twin brother is the historian Roy Medvedev. Zhores Medvedev and his twin brother Roy were born on 14 November 1925 in Tbilisi, Transcaucasian SFSR, USSR. Their mother Yulia (nee Reiman), was a cellist, and their father, Alexander Medvedev, was a philosopher in a military academy in Leningrad.

Other articles where Let History Judge is discussed: Roy Aleksandrovich Medvedev: Perhaps his most important book, Let History Judge (1971), is a comprehensive historical study of Stalinism, with particular attention paid to that movement’s origins and consequences. His books Khrushchev: The Years in Power (1976; coauthored with Zhores), Khrushchev (1983), and Khrushchev: A Political Biography (1986) are landmark biographies of that.

Рой Медведев’s most popular book is Let History Judge: The Origins and Consequences of Stalinism.

Zhores Aleksandrovich Medvedev was born in Tbilisi, in Soviet Georgia on November 14, 1925. He received a bachelor's degree from the Timiriasev Academy of Agricultural Sciences, a master's degree from the Institute of Plant Physiology at the Soviet Academy of Sciences, and a doctorate in biochemistry from Timiriasev Academy of Agricultural Sciences in 1954.

Let History Judge reflected the dissident thinking that emerged in the 1960s among Soviet intellectuals who, like Medvedev, sought a reformist version of socialism. He announced his position, along with Andrei Sakharov and others, in an open letter to the Soviet leadership in 1970. In a book co-authored with his twin brother, Zhores, A Question of Madness, Medvedev describes Zhores' involuntary commitment in the Kaluga Psychiatric Hospital (see Political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union). Zhores, a dissident biologist, was questioned in the hospital about his involvement with samizdat, and his book The Rise and Fall of .
