Summary Using the materials of Stalin's personal archive, this book explores the dictator's 'vision' of the world from two different but complementary perspectives. It begins by addressing the question of how he interpreted information. When one compares the material that he read from week to week with the decisions he subsequently shaped, it is possible to draw conclusions about the way he understood and interpreted that information. The book reveals not only how he perceived the world, but also how he mis-perceived it. It then addresses the question of how Stalin projected his vision of the world.
