An Unknown Portrait
This exceptional volume contains exciting new information about Stalin's actual and political "family", the Kremlin Mafia and the clans around him. The author has interviewed key politicians who survived the Stalin era, including officials of the KGB and the Party, as well as people who had personal contact with the dictator as secretaries or interpreters. Kun's special expertise and his access to archival sources in Russia have resulted in a work revealing jealously guarded secrets. In addition to the interviews and hitherto unpublished correspondence between Stalin, Molotov, Voroshilov, Mikoyan, Zhdanov and others, the book also contains a fascinating collection of over 300 photos of Stalin, his family members, and various political actors of the period. Extensive notes, a bibliography, and an index of names add to the value of the volume.
