(Foreword by Robert C. Tucker. Translated from the Russian by Catherine A. Fitzpatrick) Between 1925 and 1936 Josef Stalin wrote frequently to his trusted friend and political colleague Viacheslav Molotov. The more than 85 letters collected in this volume constitute a unique historical record of Stalin's thinking and throw valuable light on the way he controlled the government, plotted the overthrow of his enemies, and imagined the future.
