Stalin's Police : Public Order and Mass Repression in the USSR, 1926-1941, Hardback Book

Stalin's Police : Public Order and Mass Repression in the USSR, 1926-1941 Hardback

Description

Stalin's Police offers a new interpretation of the mass repressions associated with the Stalinist terror of the late 1930s.

This pioneering study traces the development of professional policing from its pre-revolutionary origins through the late 1930s and early 1940s.

Paul Hagenloh argues that the policing methods employed in the late 1930s were the culmination of a set of ideologically driven policies dating back to the previous decade.

Hagenloh's vivid and monumental account is the first to show how Stalin's peculiar brand of policing-in which criminals, juvenile delinquents, and other marginalized population groups were seen increasingly as threats to the political and social order-supplied the core mechanism of the Great Terror.
