The Last Stand of the Clans

(p.237) 8 Stalin and the Clans III
Practicing Stalinism

Yale University Press

This chapter details Stalin's ongoing battles with the clans. He could kill a lot of people, but he could not change the system. He could destroy the clan leaders and their followers, but he could not destroy the clan system and culture. Perhaps he didn't wish to do so. The main story of this book ends with Stalin's mass attempts to destroy the clans. But, this chapter asks, what has changed since the end of World War II? To what extent is the Russia of today different from the Soviet Union of then and the Russia of the past?

Keywords:   Stalin, clans, clan culture, clan system, World War II, Soviet Union, Russia
