Let’s Talk About Stalin — The Biography You Have to Read

Oleg V. Khlevniuk’s book, Stalin: New Biography of a Dictator portrays a unique picture of Joseph Stalin’s life, who has been mystified, deified, and revised from the time of his birth to the extent that it is difficult to demarcate truth from fabrication or falsehood.
