This biography presents the enigmatic and extraordinary life of Stalin and explains why and how he became one of the most powerful Communist leaders of his time.Through recently uncovered research material and Stalin's archives in Moscow, Kuromiya analyzes how and why Stalin was rare, even unique politician who literally lived by politics alone. He further analyses how Stalin understood psychology or human relations well and how he used this understanding in his poltical reign and terror. Kuromiya provides a convincing, concise and up-to-date analysis of Stalin's political life.Profile in Power SeriesIn recent years historians have been preoccupied with broad questions of structure and process, and many have become suspicious of biography and the `Great Man'''' approach to history.On the other hand many students and readers continue to be drawn to history by an interest in individuals. This ambitious and wide-ranging series provides critical studies of key figures in international political history since 1500. The books are not biographies, though inevitably they contain much biographical material; rather they are succinct interpretative essays, analysing the major features of the career within the context of its own time.
