Yale-Hoover series on authoritarian regimes.
Summary German scholar Jörg Baberowski is one of the world's leading experts on the Stalin era, but his work has seldom been translated into English. This book, an unremitting indictment of the mad violence with which Stalin ruled the Soviet Union, depicts Stalinism as a cruel and deliberate attack on Russian society, driven by 'totalitarian ambitions' and the goal of modernizing and rationalizing a backward people
