    This book is really dry. It is very dated, but still a fundamentally important piece of scholarship in the social history of the soviet Union. Lewin argues that Stalinism was not the inevitable result of Leninism, but instead argues that the social dynamics of Russia after WWI and the Civil War led it to be open to a "mushroomed" lateral authoritarian system such as Stalinism. It's a struggle to read for me. Experts in the field will have no problem with it. This book is really dry.
