(Marxisme, nr.1, efterår 2019, s.3-22; online på
“De borgerlige og stalinisterne har fra hver deres side forsøgt at gøre Stalin ansvarlig for alt det, der skete i Sovjetunionen. Det er vores tese, at den enorme fremgang i Sovjetunionen skete på trods af Stalin og stalinismen.”

Var Stalin så slem? Af Anders Lundkvist (Modkraft/Kontradoxa, 27. juni 2014). “Ny bog søger at stille Stalin i et mere positivt lys. Det lykkes ikke, men en række interessante spørgsmål rejses.”

Tidsdoku. Stalin – Tsaren som bar titlen Generalsekretær. Af Inge K. Hansen og Alfred Lang (Autonom Infoservice, 5. marts 2003). “Stalin døede den 5. marts 1953. Ingen anden erklæret kommunist har formået at skade socialismens sag mere end manden fra det solrige Georgien – Josef Vissarionovitsj Dsjugasjvili Stalin, blandt kampfæller kaldt ‘Koba’…”

The man who would be Stalin. By John Marot (Jacobin, March 3, 2021). Review of Ronald Grigor Suny, Stalin: Passage to Revolution (Princeton University Press, 2020, 896 p.). “Ronald Suny has given us the best picture to date of Stalin’s path to the October Revolution. But the story of the future dictator’s early life doesn’t explain the rise of Stalinism. The key developments and choices that produced that system came after the Bolsheviks took power.”

Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin: A fatally ill-conceived ‘black comedy’. By David Walsh (World Socialist Web Site, 9 March 2018). “The film is a fatally ill-conceived ‘black comedy’ about the demise of the gravedigger of the Russian Revolution, Joseph Stalin, in March 1953. The film is not so much maliciously anticommunist as it is, above all, historically clueless.”

A review of Stephen Kotkin’s Stalin: Paradoxes of Power, 1878-1928. By Fred Williams (World Socialist Web Site, 1 June 2015). “Kotkin has produced a bloated and poorly written work, recycling many of the anti-communist or Stalinist lies of the Cold War, and adding some of his own.” See also review by John Marot: Stephen Kotkin’s Stalin is a distorting mirror of the Russian Revolution (Jacobin, November 11, 2020).

Jack Conrad investigates the legacy of ‘the man of steel’.”

Reflections on the meaning of Stalinism (pdf). By Paul Le Blanc (Crisis and Critique, Vol.3, No.2, March 2016, p.81-106). “The Stalinist political framework, however, is neither a metaphysical ‘Evil’ nor as an inevitable outcome of revolutionary communism. It represents, instead, a set of human developments that can be analyzed, arising and disintegrating within specific historical contexts.”

Stalinism and historical responsibility. By James Heartfield (The Project: A Socialist Journal, May 2015; online at Internet Archive). “… looking back at the period between 1923 and 1993, how we understand the question of leadership in the working class movement is an important historical question. This essay is an attempt to look at the balance sheet.”
