This is a lively well written and dramatic biography of Stalin That said it doesn t break very much new round and some of Edvard Radzinsky s theories seem to lack solid historical support that Hitler invaded Russia only as Stalin was planning to attack Germany or that Stalin was plotting a final nuclear holocaust before he died in 1953 I was also skeptical of the author s use of the theory of in depth speech under which the meaning of things said by Stalin and other Communists is interpreted as being hidden in layers with yes actually meaning no It is similar to the Aesopian language often cited by anti Communists in America and appears flawed for cited by anti Communists in America and appears flawed for same reason through it you can conclude someone meant one thing or its total opposite though the words were the same I read this book when I was in the ninth rade I did not like it It is full of conspiracy theories and arbage For example the author claims that the USSR was planning to attack Germany first without producing any documents supporting his claim directly only his own interpretation of the documents He also focuses on Stalin s alleged anti Semitism I do not agree that Stalin was anti Semitic Even though he murdered many Jews in the USSR overnment he basically replaced them with other Jews like Lazar Kaganovich His Foreign Commissar Molotov although Gentile had Jewish wife named Polina Zhemchuzina who had an American brother who was a businessman named Sam Karp He claims Stalin was murdered by the Jews because he was allegedly planning to uarantine the Jews to Siberia right before he died again without providing much evidence It has been claimed that Stalin s mistress was a Jew named Rosa Kaganovich Lazar s sister and it is certainly true that many in his overnment were Jews so I find this difficult to believe If Stalin was murdered the Jews did not hav.
