This chapter discusses the transformation of the Soviet political police during the 1930s from a revolutionary fighting organization into a kind of social gendarmerie. It looks at sabotage to the road to pure socialism. It also considers the expansion of the activities of Iosif Stalin's political and civil police, and the complexity of jurisdictional issues. The chapter also looks at the reorganization of the OGPU. By the middle of the 1930s, the OGPU had shifted to becoming the oft-remarked-on state within the state.

Keywords:   Soviet political police, socialism, Iosif Stalin, OGPU
