Product Details


Winner of the Los Angeles Book Prize for Biography 
Winner of the Costa Book Award for Biography
A Christian Science Monitor and Seattle Times Best Book of the Year

“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 Books

Young 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
