    • Published: April 2005
    Drawing on previously unexplored archives and personal testimonies gathered from across Russia and Georgia, Robert Service has created a full-scale, deep image biography of the Soviet despot, the first in nearly twenty years. It describes in unprecedented detail the formative years of Stalin's life - his upbringing in Georgia, education and religious training, and his political activity as a prominent young revolutionary long before the Russian Revolution. Service recasts Stalin's image as dictator with limitless power; that enemies surrounded him is not entirely unfounded. Rather than diminishing the horrors of Stalinism, this believable human portrait paints a more disturbing portrait. Illus. 715p.
