Summary

"Stalin's Police offers a new interpretation of the mass repressions associated with the Stalinist terror of the late 1930s. This pioneering history traces the development of professional policing from its pre-revolutionary origins through the late 1930s and early 1940s, arguing that the policing methods employed in the late 1930s were the culmination of a set of ideologically driven policies dating back to the previous decade."--BOOK JACKET.
