Book Description John Murray, London, 2004. Soft Cover. Condition: Fine. First Paperback. xi, 398pp, chronology, bibliography, index. Paperback. In January 1953, an apparent conspiracy among Jewish doctors to murder Kremlin chiefs was discovered. The forced confessions which followed did not answer the most important questions. Did Stalin invent the conspiracy to further discredit the Jewish population, or were Jewish doctors actually involved in the deaths at his behest? Or was the 'doctors' plot' in fact the idea of Kremlin officials who used it to remove rivals in government, and perhaps even Stalin himself? Size: 8vo. Seller Inventory # 015474
