Milestone biography of the enigmatic Stalin Authors are Russia's greatest living historians Guaranteed extensive media coverage Josef Stalin remains one of the greatest enigmas of modern history. Unflinching, impenetrable, inhuman in his cruelty, bathed in misery himself, he represents to many a very paradigm of evil - perhaps, in his icy rationalism, even more so than Hitler himself. More than a hundred biographies of Stalin have been written since his death in 1953, but 'The Unknown Stalin' is the first detailed study of the torrent of new material unleashed with the opening of the secret Soviet archives when the Union collapsed. The truths extracted from these long secret archives provides a radically fresh insight into the life and career of one of the major figures of the twentieth century. 'The Unknown Stalin' by two of Russia's most distinguished historians represents one of the greatest contributions to the study of Stalin in decades, and will be of vital interest to scholars and general readers alike.
