Praise

New York Times
"...Robert Service takes a very slow walk around his gargantuan subject, patiently assembling the facts, sifting through the archival record and judiciously weighing the evidence....Persistence pays off. STALIN...presents a richly documented highly persuasive portrait....Mr. Service constructs a solid, accessible work that does as much as one book can to explain Stalin as a human being, and as the architect of a system that still weighs heavy on millions of citizens in the former Soviet Union." - William Grimes 04/13/2005

Literary Review
"Service's chief merit is his complete command of the period, the archives, and both the Russian and English languages. This is an exceptionally well-written book." - Donald Rayfield October, 2004
