BookTalk: Stalin, Vol.II: Waiting for Hitler, 1928 -1941


Heralded as the definitive biography of Joseph Stalin and the world he lived in, the first volume of Prof. Kotkin’s trilogy recast the way we think about Stalin and the Soviet Union. In this talk on the occasion of the publication of his second volume, Kotkin will explore the industrialization of a kind the world had never seen, the militarization of Soviet society, the pact that shocked the world, and the invasion that followed.
