This volume of oral history contains new information about Joseph Stalin's actual and political 'family', the political Mafia and the clans that surrounded him. The author has interviewed key politicians who survived the Stalin era, including officials of the KGB and the Komsomol and people who had personal contact with the dictator as secretaries or interpreters. The author's expertise and his access to archival sources in Russia have resulted in a work revealing jealously guarded secrets. This volume also contains a fascinating selection of photographs from a private collection. This collection includes photographs pf Stalin, his family members, as well as various political actors of the period.
