Freedom and Terror in the Donbas by Hiroaki Kuromiya

Book Description

This book discusses both the freedom of the Ukrainian-Russian borderland of the Donbas and the terror it has suffered because of that freedom. In a detailed panorama the book presents the tumultuous history of this steppe frontier land from its foundation as a modern coal and steel industrial centre to the post-Soviet present. Wild and unmanageable, this haven for fugitives posed a constant political challenge to Moscow and Kiev. In the light of new information gained from years of work in previously closed Soviet archives (including the former KGB archives in the Donbas), the book presents, from a regional perspective, new interpretations of critical events in modern Ukrainian and Russian history: the Russian Revolution, the famine of 1932-3, the Great Terror, World War II, collaboration, the Holocaust, and de-Stalinization.

Swept up in the maelstrom of Stalin's Great Terror of 1937-1938, nearly a million people died. This book attempts to retrieve their stories and reconstruct their lives, drawing upon declassified archives of the former Soviet Secret Police in Kiev. It investigates the truth behind the fabricated records.

Stalin by Hiroaki Kuromiya Stalin, Paperback (November 2005)

Stalin was once described - by Hitler - as "half beast, half giant". How did a man once regarded by his rivals as intellectually inferior come to achieve near-divine status as dictator of the largest country in the world? This biography argues that the key to understanding the enigma of Stalin lies in his unadulterated political ambition.
