This is a study of the structure of the Soviet Communist Party in the 1930s. Based upon archival and published sources, the work describes the events in the Bolshevik Party leading up to the Great Purges of 1937-1938. Professor Getty concludes that the party bureaucracy was chaotic rather than totalitarian, and that local officials had relative autonomy within a considerably fragmented political system. The Moscow leadership, of which Stalin was the most authoritarian actor, reacted to social and political processes as much as instigating them. Because of disputes, confusion, and inefficiency, they often promoted contradictory policies. Avoiding the usual concentration on Stalin's personality, the author puts forward the controversial hypothesis that the Great Purges occurred not as the end product of a careful Stalin plan, but rather as the bloody but ad hoc result of Moscow's incremental attempts to centralise political power.

I loved this book; it was part of the reason I got an A on my research paper about the assassination of Sergei Kirov. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars (which I would like to do) is that this book had significant damage and the seller really shouldn't have charged so much for it. Other than that, no complaints. Really, a book rated in 'good' condition should not have huge coffee stains on several pages. That's just wrong, but, J. Arch Getty, you rock!

J. Arch Getty is one of the best professors I ever head the pleasure to know or study under. This book, meticulously researched and thoroughly readable, deserves a much wider audience. Getty is rightfully regarded as one of the preeminent authorities on the Stalin era, and this early work justifies his reputation. The negative reviewer's critique is unfair and should not deter any interested reader in picking up this excellent book.

This is one of the most misleading interpretations of the Stalinist Great Terror and includes falsification of data. Not hundreds of thousands but millions perished in Stalin's purges, but softening the inhumanity of socialism opens a clear path to tenure in our uniperverities. Soviet scholars of the Gorbachev era and post-Soviet Russian scholars are appalled by Getty's lies, but history departments in U.S. universities are enthralled by his 'genius'.
