Using newly declassified material, Russian journalist Vaksberg traces the effects of Stalin's fanatical anti-Semitism. (Mar.)
Library Journal
Stalin publicly espoused Marxism's international ideology by championing Russia's Jews but, behind the scenes, anti-Semitism ruled his plots for their destruction. Vaksberg ( The Prosecutor: Andrei Vyshinsky and the Moscow Show Trials , LJ 2/1/91) has delved into recently opened public records to reveal new information, including the possibility that Stalin's schemes against the Jews began earlier than previously thought. This work covers much the same territory as Louis Rapoport's Stalin's War Against the Jews ( LJ 9/1/90). Both examine Stalin's early writing on the ``national question,'' the purges of the 1930s, the rise of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee, the murder of Jewish leader Solomon Mikhoels, and the Doctor's Plot. Rapoport's lacked some of Vaksberg's sources, but his work is more carefully documented. Vaksberg's readable study is recommended for larger collections.-- Rena Fowler, Humboldt State Univ., Arcata, Cal .
