Khrushchev and Molotov on Beria

I post these excerpts here for a balanced view of Beria’s role in order to encourage dialectic analysis of whether he was a Marxist-Leninist or a revisionist. I post these here despite serious misgivings about the thesis that “Beria poisoned Stalin,” a theory for which I’ve found no evidence except for the book “Molotov Remembers,”Continue reading “Khrushchev and Molotov on Beria”

Grover Furr: Rejoinder to Roger Keeran

Written by Grover Furr Let me begin by acknowledging the positive. Keeran correctly identified one error in my book. On page 30 I wrote: Stalin did refer to Trotskyites in very hostile terms. But he did not advocate persecuting them [i.e. Trotskyites]. As Keeran notes, this is wrong. I should have written: Stalin did referContinue reading “Grover Furr: Rejoinder to Roger Keeran”

Review of Less Than Zero

Reading this 22,000-word novel (barely longer than a short story) is as easy and as inexplicable as the feeling of gazing outContinue reading “Review of Less Than Zero”
