really liked it
Read in October, 2007

A clear-eyed assessment of Stalin's reign. Montefiore is neither an apologist nor a conspiracy theorist, and his assessment of Stalin's crimes struck me as being very well-researched and non-partisan. Though it does sometimes read like the Zagat Guide to Stalin (lots of sentences with a single word in quotes), it was informative and well-structured. Certainly recommended for anyone who would like to know more about this era in Soviet history.
