A new appraisal of Stalin''s impact on Soviet history, arguing that his thought and actions are best explained by the inter-relationship of war and revolution in the first half of the twentieth century.
From the Publisher:
Argues that Josef Stalin was an obsessive, motivated by the perceived threat of 'backward' social classes and saboteurs, and not just by power lust or inherent evil. This book criticises the view that Stalin's murderous nature was driven by a single, power-hungry need to remove his political rivals and gain autocracy.
Stalin's massive impact on Soviet history is often explained in terms of his inherent evil, personality defects, and power lust. This volume argues that Stalin's thoughts and actions are best contextualized in the inter-relationship between war and revolution in the first half of the twentieth century. Kevin McDermott incorporates recently declassified materials from the former Soviet Party archives and provides a critical review of western and Russian historiography.
