Practicing Stalinism

J. Arch Getty

Yale University Press

The Epilogue shows that many of the practices described in this book continue to the present day, having outlived the Soviet Union. They are embedded in Russian history as a “deep structure.” There had never been any other way to govern Russia, and upon reflection it would have been surprising indeed if Stalin could have replaced a thousand years of governing practice just by killing the current incumbents.
