Reviews
"I have no doubt that this brilliant book will supplant all others as an analytical account of the Stalinist political system in the 1930s."--Robert Service, St. Antony's College, Oxford--Robert Service
"This is an extraordinary book, the prequel to Khlevniuk and Gorlizki's Cold Peace, and an equally important contribution to our understanding of the 'court politics' of the Stalin era. It is simply unique, unparalleled, and indispensable to anyone who wants to understand how the Soviet Union was ruled in the 1930s. Khlevniuk is the master of the archives--no one knows them better."--Ronald Grigor Suny, The University of Michigan--Ronald Grigor Suny
Chosen as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2009 by Choice Magazine-- "Choice" (1/1/2010 12:00:00 AM)
This book confirms Khlevniuk's status as the leading authority on the highest Party bodies in the Stalin era.--James Harris, Journal of Modern History
