5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever biography, 13 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Young Stalin (Paperback)
I had taken this book out of the library, but it was returned by my wife in error (off to the gulag with her),after I had read only thirty odd pages.I was so hooked by it I bought a copy, for little more than the library's re-order fee.
The author has uncovered a lot of new sources, many hidden by Stalin himself, and paints a fascinating picture of the man, and his native Georgia, now troubling the Russian federation.At times the story is comedic, and though it is a serious history, it is easily read.It goes a long way to explain the older Stalin's paranoia, and ensuing terrors- perhaps if it was distributed in Russia it may help stop his rehabilitation in the eyes of the people, though I suspect Mr Putin wouldn't be too keen on that.
I would be keen to read any other biography by the same author, such is the way he handles the subject.
