The most comprehensive and revealing investigation of Stalinism and political developments in the Soviet Union, this book is an extensively revised and expanded edition of the classic work. Soviet historian Roy Medvedev, under constant surveillance and harassment, has compiled this enlarged edition during a time of great change for the Soviet Union. Attempts to preserve Stalinism by conservative leaders like Brezhnev have failed and more progressive leaders sought to demolish the Stalinism system. The book contains material on the purges in 1929-1931 and the terror against the peasantry, the Kirov assassination, and the "great terror" 1936-38 which caused such damage it left the Soviet Union vulnerable to Hitler's attack in 1941. The book also contains information on Stalin's mistakes during the war and chronicles new purges from 1946-53. First published in 1971, this expanded edition contains interviews and memoirs that came forth subsequently.
