Stalin: a Critical Survey of Bolshevism
Stalin: a Critical Survey of Bolshevism
By Boris Souvarine
Alliance, 1939, 690 pp

The author helped found the French Communist Party and once belonged to the Executive Committee of the Comintern. His book is not only a devastating attack on Stalin for having wrecked the socialist experiment in Russia but a critical analysis of the conflict between the various forces and personalities in the Soviet leadership. An important book, in some respects a Russian counterpart to Rauschning's invaluable volume on Germany.
