The Secret File of Joseph Stalin: A Hidden Life
Frank Cass, 2003 - 466 頁
The Secret File of Joseph Stalin: A Hidden Life brings to light the true story of one of the greatest monsters in modern history. Starting with Stalin's early years, the book reveals the bitter family conflicts caused by the suspicion that Stalin was the child of an adulterous affair. This suspicion poisoned the lives of his parents, and eventually led to the break-up of the family and to severe physical abuse by Stalin's father, which left the 10-year-old boy's arm crippled for the rest of his life. These traumas left Stalin's soul crippled as well. He would grow up into a brutal and cunning criminal, and became an agent provocateur of the tsarist secret police, the Okhrana, which afforded him protection in exchange for information on the activities of the revolutionary underground.
