March 11, 2015

Stephen Kotkin spoke about his book, Stalin: Volume I: Paradoxes of Power, at Politics & Prose on Wednesday, March 11, 2015.

In the first volume of a planned three-volume life, Kotkin, Princeton history professor and acting director of the university’s Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies program, and Hoover Institution research fellow, shows his subject’s evolution from one-time seminarian to ruthless dictator, linking the man’s traits—paranoia, brutality—to those of both imperial Russia and the Bolshevik power structure.
