The effects of his long domination in the Soviet Union are so far-reaching that they still cannot be finally assessed. Under Stalins ruthless hands, a huge, almost helpless Russian nation was swiftly transformed into an industrial and military giant. In less than two decades the Stalinist experiment produced a world power second only to the United States. Stalin and His Times describes briefly the history of the Soviet Union while Stalin struggled for and won power and while he ruled. It attempts to explain why the history evolved as it did, why Stalin succeeded in achieving many of his objectives, and in what ways he failed. It also seeks to assess the significance of Stalins era (1923-1953) for the Soviet Union and for the outside world.
