In this groundbreaking appraisal of the Stalinist regime and its interaction with Russian society during the Terror of the 1930s, Robert W. Thurston uses a wide array of material from newly opened archives. He draws a new, controversial picture of Stalinism, arguing that the Soviet leader did not intend or need to terrorize the country. Robert W. Thurston is Professor of History at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
