Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book. One of the most obscured historical topics is the conflict between Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky. In this book we finally discover that Stalin, the brutal paranoid psychopath that he doubtless was, actually tried to restore traditional Russian values and defeat the amoral, subversive and destructive ideology of international Marxism as represented by Trotsky and his cohorts. Trotsky's ideological descendants accused Stalin of being anti-semitic based upon the fact that many of Stalin's prominent enemies were Jewish. But I don't think Stalin was actually motivated by anti-Jewish attitudes since he had Jews as his closest advisers. The confusion lies in the simple fact that many of the leading Trotskyites and Old Bolsheviks were Jewish by ethnicity and so these people inevitably ended-up either in gulags or dead.

Although Stalin may have had a few redeeming qualities, nothing can whitewash his horrendous record of mass-murder, particularly the deliberate starvation of millions of Ukrainians.

While most interpretations of Stalin approach their subject from either radically left or rigidly center perspectives, complicating the matter through their own prejudices, this is the explanation that actually made the most sense to me.

Format: Paperback
"Stalin: The Enduring Legacy" is a book by Kerry Bolton, a New Zealand fascist. Bolton defends Stalin, Stalin's protégé Zhdanov and the post-Stalin Soviet Union (until Gorbachev), but not the original revolutionary regime of Lenin and Trotsky. He also defends Vladimir Putin's Russia and makes positive references to Alexander Dugin. Bolton's study is surprisingly well written for a (self-published?) fringe work, and I read it with considerable interest. Stalin *is* popular among a whole layer of mostly Russian nationalists and fascists. The so-called Red-Brown Bloc between Stalin-loving Communists and the far right was a potent political force in Russia during the 1990's. Bolton's book explains why a fascist would find Stalin interesting or even worthy of support. During the mid-1930's, Stalin turned towards Greater Russian nationalism and enacted several reforms that could be viewed as "conservative", such as the prohibition of abortion and homosexuality, or the promotion of motherhood within the traditional family. Bolton quotes Zhdanov's attack on modern art at length (both Bolton and the Stalinist leader consider such art to be decadent), and he is positive towards Stalin's pan-Slavism and anti-Semitism. (For some reason, Bolton never mentions Stalin's rehabilitation of the Orthodox Church during World War II, perhaps because the conflict between Hitler and Stalin doesn't fit the author's worldview.)

To Bolton, the United States and the West more generally are the real anti-traditional revolutionaries, while "Communist" Russia really represents a form of organic nationalism incorporating many traditional, conservative structures.
