Originally published in 1952, this book examines the change from revolutionism to nationalism which took place in the Soviet Union during the 1930s. It describes the course of this change, as shown by Stalin's decrees and writings, and discusses the Stalinist conception of Russian and world history, and its bearing on world revolution.
'A most important and radical contribution to the understanding of Stalinist imperialism, more sharply illuminating than volumes of direct political analysis.' Edward Crankshaw
