In this ground-breaking collection of essays by an international team of leading experts in the field, a detailed examination is provided of three under-researched aspects of Soviet political repression in the 1930s: case studies of regional and sectoral dimensions of the purges, 'victim studies' of the Great Terror and an assessment of the impact of political repression on Soviet economic development in the late 1930s.The book draws on archival documents and published materials that have received little attention in Western historiography. Much of the information detailed here is presented to the English language readership for the first time.
