Overview

"Stalin's Genocides is a magisterial and admirably lucid analysis of the Stalinist terrors that is both totally accessible and finely nuanced in its scholarship—Naimark's superb work assigns the criminality to Stalin's own bizarre personality as well as the repressive Soviet system."—Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Young Stalin and Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar

"This book is simply outstanding. Naimark takes the most significant aspect of Stalin's rule—mass terror—and shows how it was applied under Stalin's direct inspiration and, often, his close supervision. It is proof of Naimark's mastery of the subject and superb writing skills that he can provide sharp, gripping sketches of such monumental issues in Soviet history."—Jan T. Gross, author of Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland
