Praise

“Brilliantly researched. . . . The portrait of Stalin that emerges from these pages is more complete, more colorful, more chilling, and far more convincing than any we have had before.” —The New York Review of BooksYoung Stalin is brilliantly readable, as intricately plotted and full of detail as a good novel, scrupulously researched, and full of hitherto unknown (or unreported) facts about Stalin’s life.” —Men’s Vogue“A meticulously researched, authoritative biography. . . . Mr. Montefiore has found the devil in the details, working his way with a fine-tooth comb through previously unread archival material.” —The New York Times“The most complete, accurate account of the tyrant’s early years-a fascinating tale of life in the revolutionary underground, drenched in violence, fear and deceit, filled with a rogue’s gallery of bandits, double-agents and terrorists.” —The Seattle Times
