That Stalin was one of history's great tyrants began to dawn on the world during his lifetime and has become widely recognized since his death twenty years ago. But in spite of all the recent revelations about the man and his time, this most secretive of modern dictators has remained a profoundly enigmatic figure, awaiting interpretation as a personality against the background of the revolutionary movement that he joined in his youth. Stalin's ambition was to become a revolutionary hero like Lenin

Tucker, in this prestigiously sponsored (Princeton's Institute of Advanced Studies) analysis of the Younger Stalin - from childhood until his quasi-deification as The Leader in 1929 - acknowledges a debt to Erikson, although the latter's schemata for psychic growth falls by the wayside, and the narrative, between the first few chapters and the last, is more like history a la Kennan and Adam Ulam (The Bolsheviks).

I first read this first volume as a library book in about 1977. I have often felt the need to refer back to the book in the readings that I have been doing since. Accordingly, I recently acquired a copy of the book for my own library. I wanted to read the entire book straight through and then use the book as a reference book to compare with my other more recent readings. The book is a welcome addition to my library.

It's a shame that this book is out of print. It's an excellent book by an excellent author. This book contains all of the things you would expect from a biography of Stalin, including all of the stories of his childhood, etc. What makes this book interesting and controversial, however, is that Tucker dares to explore what effect his childhood might have had on his future personality (always dangerous ground for a historian) and detail his motives as well as his tactics in the struggle for power in the post-Lenin Soviet Union.
That said, it should be noted that, as is common with Tucker's books, this is the middle book in Tucker's biography of Stalin. It's focus is on his rise to power and the consolidation of that power in the Soviet Union, although it does deal slightly with other periods. Also useful is the chapter on Lenin. A very useful book for anyone interested in Russian studies, as Stalin was one of the shaping figures of the Soviet Union.
