The unknown Stalin by Zhores A Medvedev( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Josef Stalin remains one of the greatest enigmas of modern history. Unflinching, impenetrable, inhuman in his cruelty, bathed in misery himself, he represents to many a very paradigm of evil - perhaps, in his icy rationalism, even more so than Hitler himself. More than a hundred biographies of Stalin have been written since his death in 1953, but this study looks at the torrent of new material unleashed with the opening of the secret Soviet archives when the Union collapsed. The truths extracted from these long-secret archives provide a radically fresh insight into the life and career of one o

The unknown Stalin : his life, death and legacy by Roy Aleksandrovich Medvedev( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giving the best and most informative explanation to date of the mystery of Stalin's death, renowned historians Roy and Zhores Medvedev have written a gripping new biography of Joseph Stalin, based on findings from research into archives only recently made available, as well as the Medvedev brothers' own experiences during and after Stalin's brutal regime. Conventional beliefs and cliches are contradicted and disproved, inaccuracies and misconceptions are corrected, and the facts about Stalin's intellect, ancestry, and the fortunes of his personal effects after his death are fully examined. Perhaps most remarkable of all are the Medvedevs' revelations and contentions concerning Stalin's death: There has been much suspicion over whether he was assassinated or died of natural causes, and the authors go a long way toward resolving this question. The Unknown Stalin resonates with particular intensity due to the personal detail and recollections of the two authors -- each of whom has his own history as a Russian dissident and commentator. This startling new work represents one of the most significant contributions to the study of Russian history in decades, a book of vital interest to scholars and general readers
Molecular-genetic mechanisms of development by Zhores A Medvedev( Book )

21 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and Russian and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although as part of my general plan, this book is a continua tion of my earlier monograph "Protein Biosynthesis and Problems of Ontogenesis, "* published in 1963, in all other respects it is an independent work. The earlier monograph was devoted to the analysis of many of the aspects of the problem of protein biosynthesis, and problems of inheritance and development were discussed only insofar as they are derivatives of the problems of biosynthesis. The complex act of protein biosynthesis, comprising autore production of the genetic material (DNA), formation of the templates of protein synthesis (messenger RNA), synthesis of amino acid carriers (transfer RNA), formation of ribosomes and polysomes, activation of amino acids, and so on, was examined in the previous monograph not merely from the standpoint of interaction between the components of this system, but also from that of their mani festation in actual biological systems during morphogenesis and aging of the organism. However, both morphogenesis and aging were investigated very generally, Simply as models, without any detailed analysis of their specific features and complexity. The present book is therefore a logical continuation of its prede cessor. It rests largely on a comprehensive analysis of the molecular-genetic and biochemical aspects of development and differentiation of living organisms, and questions of protein biosyn thesis are discussed briefly and generally, and only so far as is necessary for fulfillment of the primary task. - Zh.

Stalin i evreĭskai︠a︡ problema : novyĭ analiz by Zhores A Medvedev( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in Russian and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzing the post-1945 Stalinist policies concerning the Jews, contends that Stalin was not so much an antisemite as an anti-Zionist. His goal was the full assimilation of Jews with Russians, and his support for the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was a desperate attempt by the USSR to take hold in the Middle East after the failure of expansion through Turkey and Iran. Argues that Mikhoels was killed and Zhemchuzhina was arrested as leaders of the pro-Israel lobby group in the USSR. Examines subsequent anti-Jewish campaigns, such as the trial of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee, in the context of Stalin's other political campaigns; all of them were directed against certain groups in the Soviet leadership. Focuses on the Doctors' Plot, contending that this purely political affair was stopped by Stalin himself some days before his death, which explains why the defendants were so quickly rehabilitated in April 1953. Rejects the view that Stalin's leadership planned a mass expulsion of Jews after the trial of the accused doctors. Concludes that Stalin's death did not put an end to Soviet official antisemitism, which in Khrushchev's and Brezhnev's epochs was even stronger than in Stalin's time
