    The late Anton Antonov Ovseyenko was arrested in 1940 and spent thirteen years in prison and camps of the Gulag for the crime of being the son of an “enemy of the people” He was a historian by education but The Time of Stalin Portrait of a Tyranny is not a conventional volume of history Instead Antonov Ovseyenko produced an extended prosecutorial indictment of the myriad crimes of Stalin and Stalinism Based on archival research and conversations with the few surviving Old Bolsheviks his fellow prisoners and common citizens both victims and accomplices Antonov Ovseyenko brought to life the perverse atmosphere of paranoia and criminality which pervaded the Soviet Union under Stalin's yokeRussian expert Stephen F Cohen of Princeton wrote in his fine introduction of Antonov Ovseyenko's book Its style and contents are not the product of academic dispassion but of personal experience forbidden research and anger that these crimes are still covered up It is the voice of a survivor a witness a historian telling his people and all of us that for such historical crimes there is no statute of limitations Antonov Ovseyenko earned a strong Four Stars from me for his unambiguous perspective on Stalin's rule It makes for a fascinating yet appalling insight into a sordid chapter of modern history For those with an interest in the period The Time of Stalin Portrait of a Tyranny would be an excellent companion to Simon Sebag Montefiore's Stalin The Court of the Red Tsar

    The Time of Stalin Portrait of Tyranny by Anton Antonov OvseyenkoI am still reading but I find this very interesting and some what scary When you think that the man you allow to lead you is so corrupt and just plan crazy I like the way the author writes he seems to have healed uite a bit his writing shows his pain but as if he is absent for the moment This man as a child lived in the concentrations camps Very good read so far
