Koba the Dread: Laughter and the Twenty Million

Koba the Dread: Laughter and the Twenty Million - Martin Amis The material is of course the same, but I like this slightly better than Robert Service's "Stalin: a biography", but they're both good. So why did I read two biographies of Stalin? Yeeeeaaaaah... I don't really have a good answer to that question. Morbid fascination tempered with a desire to understand why people like Stalin continue to populate our world- with an astonishing number in positions of influence.
