Davies, S. R. and Harris, J. (2005) 'Joseph Stalin : power and ideas.', in Stalin : a new history. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, pp. 1-17.
The recent declassification of a substantial portion of Stalin's archive has made possible this fundamental new assessment of the controversial Soviet leader. Leading international experts accordingly challenge many assumptions about Stalin from his early life in Georgia to the Cold War years--with contributions ranging across the political, economic, social, cultural, ideological and international history of the Stalin era. The volume provides a more profound understanding of Stalin's power and one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century.
