Lenin and Stalin stand as two giants in the history of Russia. In this Studymate Rob Johnson (Oxford University) takes the reader through the key events that shaped the major Communist State and explains how ideologues propagated an exclusive and determinist worldview. The result was World War and decades of oppression. Only now as the Soviet Union slips into history can this perspective be truly appreciated. This Studymate will explain the key ideas and events that shaped Communism in Russia, the myths that were created by the communists to conceal the truth and how historians have responded
The author is Dr Robert Johnson Senior Fellow at the University of Oxford
