Master of the House
This chapter summarizes the main themes covered and presents some concluding thoughts from the author. By 1941, Stalin had consolidated his dictatorship and established one of the most brutal regimes that ever existed in Russia or indeed the world. It is argued that archival materials do not support the theory that there were factions within the Politburo. The conduct of both large-scale repressive measures and reforms was based on Stalin's proposals (or, in most cases, on his orders).
