From one of our greatest contemporary historians of Russia and author of the bestselling Lenin, Robert Service's Stalin brings us closer than ever before to the enigma of this terrifying, fascinating and complex figure Drawing on a wealth of unexplored material - available for the first time since the collapse of the former Soviet Union -.
"...Robert Service takes a very slow walk around his gargantuan subject, patiently assembling the facts, sifting through the archival record and judiciously weighing the evidence....Persistence pays off. STALIN...presents a richly documented highly persuasive portrait....Mr. Service constructs a solid, accessible work that does as much as one book can to explain Stalin as a human being, and as the architect of a system that still weighs heavy on millions of citizens in the former Soviet Union."
William Grimes, New York Times, 04/13/2005Review:
"Service's chief merit is his complete command of the period, the archives, and both the Russian and English languages. This is an exceptionally well-written book."
