This collection of essays (with contributors from Britain, Continental Europe and the USA) deals with the character and aftermath of Stalinism in the USSR. The focus is on the interwar years and on the methodological problems of studying this period, but the volume also highlights the links between Stalinism and the Tsarist past, and the ways in which Stalinism, in its very formation, prepared the ground for its own demise. In this way it aims contributes to an historical understanding of the current upheavals in the Soviet Union.
