New York, NY: Oxford University Press, 1990. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Signed by Robert Conquest. Originally published in 1968, Robert Conquest’s ‘The Great Terror’ is a critique of Stalinism, and the era of Stalin’s rule over the USSR. A highly respected British poet and Sovietologist, Conquest (1917-2015) lays out a firm rebuke of Joseph Stalin’s regime and gives a comprehensive history of the formation of the Soviet Union and the events that led to Stalin's rise to power.
