Praise for the first edition:
"By far the best biography of Stalin available....It is convincing and quite objective, and...gives a plausible and logical explanation of Stalin's life as it relates to the history of his times and to the other Marxist leaders of Russia."--South Atlantic Quarterly
"The most widely read and accepted standard on the subject."--Review of Politics
"A marvelous accomplishment....Hardly a page in which his treatment does not have the clarity, force, and fairness that comes from the fact that he places events in the enduring context of historical perspective."--John Dewey
"The most readable, fair, informative, and generally useful of all the biographies of Stalin thus far published."--F.L. Schuman
"Brings a whole period alive....[Deutscher] has produced what will...remain the classic biography and reference book until such time as the Bolshevik archives...are thrown open."--The New York Times Book Review
