Editorial Reviews

Review

"Editors Sarah Davies and James Harris have done students of twentieth-century Russian history a real service by compiling these essays."
-Robert Himmer, The Russian Review

"With this outstanding collection, Davies and Harris not only present a more compelling and comprehensive individual but greatly advance our understanding the Soviet state under Stalin."
Golfo Alexopoulos, American Historical Review

"the book will be of interest and value for students of Russian history." -The NYMAS Review

Book Description

The figure of Joseph Stalin has always provoked heated and often polarized debate. The recent declassification of a substantial portion of Stalin's archive has made possible this fundamental new assessment of the Soviet leader. In this groundbreaking study, leading international experts challenge many assumptions about Stalin from his early life in Georgia to the Cold War years with contributions ranging across the political, economic, social, cultural, ideological and international history of the Stalin era. This study will prove invaluable reading for students of Stalin and Stalinism.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mary Schaeffer Conroy on February 28, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The chapters that comprise this compilation discuss the factors that honed Stalin's political outlook and acumen, enabling him to manage the Soviet Union for over three decades. Based on newly accessible Russian archival materials, the chapters document that Stalin was intelligent, hardworking and politically astute--as well as needlessly, viciously wasteful of the economic and human capital of the USSR. As a non-Marxist--indeed an anti-Marxist--I found the chapter on Stalin as a Marxist irritating. Otherwise, the chapters in this book go far to explaining Stalin's rise to power and how he managed to stay in power so long.
