An Israeli journalist, profiting by glasnost and the opportunity to go to the Soviet Union, has used firsthand material from interviews, together with other evidence, to write the most complete account yet published of the so-called Doctors' Plot. Of Stalin's anti-Jewish, not just anti-Zionist, feelings and policies this study leaves no room for doubt. Whether Stalin was planning a Hitler-like "final solution" we cannot be sure; he died before he could carry out whatever plans he had. On the question of how the Doctors' Plot fit into the struggle for power around and after the death of Stalin, the author has some interesting ideas, though many aspects remain to be clarified.
