However, Stalin\'s accession to power brought a change of policy towards the periphery - the encouragement of local autonomy which had been a key part of Karelias model development was reversed, the state border was sealed to the outside world, and large parts of the republic\'s territory were given over to Gulag labour camps controlled by the NKVD, the precursor of the KGB. Using recently declassified party, state, and security police documents, this book traces the evolution of Soviet Karelia in the interwar period, discussing amongst other things how political relations between Moscow and the regional leadership changed over time; the nature of its spatial, economic and demographic development; and the origins of the massive repressions launched in 1937 against the local population.\"--BOOK JACKET.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
