Joseph Stalin

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-- In a precise, crisp style, Caulkins focuses on a man many view as one of the greatest tyrants the world has known, yet who is recognized for transforming the Soviet Union into an industrialized--albeit autocratic--nation. Caulkins guides readers through the complexities of Soviet history, revealing the enigmatic character of Stalin. No background reading is required. The book is a good introduction for those learning about the U.S.S.R. today, and it provides an added dimension to Albert Marrin's Stalin: Russia's Man of Steel (Viking, 1988). A well-organized, worthy purchase for school and public libraries. --L. R. Little, Penticton Public Library, B.C., Canada
