Kuromiya's Stalin is a masterful and concise account, impressively researched, clearly written, poised and persuasive in its analysis.
Professor Orlando Figes, Birkbeck College, University of London.
Professor Kuromiya is fully steeped in the new sources and fresh historiography of the fearsome dictator. He makes ample use of his earlier pioneering research on Soviet history as well as new documents declassified from the Soviet archives. [This] is the best short biography of Stalin that we have.
Professor Norman M. Naimark, Stanford University.
“This book provides such knowledge and deserves to be widely read. Many readers will learn a lot from it. Students on many courses will find it valuable”.
Michael Ellman, Amsterdam University
“Thoughtful, balanced and accessible. A welcome addition to the literature on the general secretary, as it combines a persuasive, flexible thesis with a terse, thorough and up-to-date accounting of Stalin’s career”.
David Brandenberger, University of Richmond
