    Of the many different versions of this often told tale, J Arch Getty s is one of the best Eschewing the simplistic portrait of Stalin as an evil mastermind, Getty instead stages a complex discursive analysis of inner party documents, central committee minutes, and private letters documents made available for the first time in the 1990s The picture revealed is hardly one of monolithic totalitarian power, but rather that of a fractured party and state power with only a tenuous grasp on contro Of the many different versions of this often told tale, J Arch Getty s is one of the best Eschewing the simplistic portrait of Stalin as an evil mastermind, Getty instead stages a complex discursive analysis of inner party documents, central committee minutes, and private letters documents made available for the first time in the 1990s The picture revealed is hardly one of monolithic totalitarian power, but rather that of a fractured party and state power with only a tenuou...
