TOP REVIEWS FROM STALIN AND STALINISM IN RUSSIAN HISTORY
A great course. A very interesting topic that gives a lot of details. A good course for people interested in history. The assignments at the end of the lecture help to remember all the material.
This was quite detailed. There is so much to be learned from this class. And to think, it all is relatively recent history. Thank you.
Very interesting course. Well taught and good materials. Note that coursework relies on weekly mini-essays and a final longer essay.
A wonderful introduction to Stalin's era and aftermath. It also helps me to see why Russia is in its current status.
