The definitive work on Stalin's purges, the author's The Great Terror was universally acclaimed when it first appeared in 1968. It was "hailed as the only scrupulous, nonpartisan, and adequate book on the subject". And in recent years it has received equally high praise in the Soviet Union, where it is now considered the authority on the period, and has been serialized in Neva, one of their leading periodicals. Of course, when the author wrote the original volume two decades ago, he relied heavily on unofficial sources. Now, with the advent of glasnost, an avalanche of new material is available, and he has mined this enormous cache to write a substantially new edition of his classic work. It is remarkable how many of the most disturbing conclusions have born up under the light of fresh evidence. But the author has added enormously to the detail, including hitherto secret information on the three great "Moscow Trials," on the fate of the executed generals, on the methods of obtaining confessions, on the purge of writers and other members of the intelligentsia, on life in the labor camps, and many other key matters. Both a leading Sovietologist and a highly respected poet, the author blends research with prose, providing not only an authoritative account of Stalin's purges, but also a compelling chronicle of one of this century's most tragic events. A timely revision of a book long out of print, this is the updated version of the author's original work.

Robert Conquest's The Harvest of Sorrow helped to reveal to the West the true and staggering human cost of the Soviet regime in its deliberate starvation of millions of peasants and remains one of the most important works of Soviet history ever written. More deaths resulted from the actions described in this book than from the whole of the First World War. Epic in scope and rich in detail, The Harvest of Sorrow describes how millions of peasants in the USSR were dispossessed and deported as a result of the abolition of private property, and how millions in the newly established ‘collective’ farms of the Ukraine and other regions were then deliberately starved to death through impossibly high quotas, the removal of all other sources of food and their isolation from outside help. With the publication of this and his earlier book, The Great Terror, which revealed the truth about Stalin’s political purges, Robert Conquest revealed to the West the staggering human cost of the Soviet regime.

Zwei Weltkriege, die russische Revolution, Aufstieg und Fall des "Dritten Reichs", der Holocaust - zwischen 1914 und 1945 brechen große politische Katastrophen über Europa herein und verändern die Gesellschaft von Grund auf. Im Zentrum der Katastrophen stehen drei Diktatoren: Lenin, Stalin und Hitler. Während über die Verbrechen und Grausamkeit der Letztgenannten Einigkeit besteht, wird Lenin bisweilen als "guter Gründungsvater" eingeschätzt. Zu unrecht. Der renommierte Historiker Robert Gellately beweist in seiner Studie Lenins verheerende Rolle für die jüngere Geschichte und liefert damit den Schlüssel zu einem besseren Verständnis des großen Weltenbrands.

Der Diktator und seine Herrschaft. Ein neuer Blick auf Stalin. Am Morgen des 1. März 1953, kurz nachdem er seinen engsten Führungszirkel verabschiedet hat, erleidet Josef Stalin in seiner Datscha bei Moskau einen Schlaganfall. Wenige Tage später ist er tot. Oleg Chlewnjuk, einer der führenden Stalinismus-Experten, nimmt diese letzten Lebenstage zum Ausgangspunkt einer beeindruckenden Biographie – auf Grundlage bisher unbekannter Quellen aus sowjetischen Archiven eröffnet sie einen neuen Blick auf den Diktator und seine Herrschaft. So spiegelt sich in Stalins letzten Tagen nicht nur der eigentümliche Charakter seines Regimes, auch seine intimste Umgebung gerät ins Blickfeld. Die Phase des Abschieds erschließt zudem eine neue Perspektive auf die wichtigsten Stationen seines Lebens: Kindheit und Jugend in Georgien, der Weg vom jungen Revolutionär zum politischen Führer und grausamen Despoten, der Kampf gegen Nazi-Deutschland, der Beginn des Kalten Krieges. Chlewnjuk durchleuchtet die elitären Machtzirkel des Kremls, die Stalin umgeben – und zeigt damit, wie untrennbar die Person des Diktators mit der Geschichte des sowjetischen Terrors verknüpft ist.
