STALIN: The Court of the Red Tsar
Simon Sebag Montefiore
To be published in Phoenix paperback at £9.99 on 3 June 2004
Simon Sebag Montefiore’s remarkable history of Stalin and his
court was a Sunday Times top ten bestseller when it was
published in hardback in 2003 and received outstanding acclaim:
‘an extraordinary book
Anne Applebaum, The Evening Standard
Andrew Marr, The Daily Telegraph
‘spectacular….. an impressive and compelling work’
Philip Mansel, The Spectator
STALIN: THE COURT OF THE RED TSAR is the enthralling, intimate
and accessible story of the secret world of the dictator and his
court that shows him as he has never been seen before. Based on
massive research from Moscow to Petersburg, from the Black Sea
to Buenos Aires, filled with fascinating new materials from
Stalin’s own newly-opened papers, unpublished memoirs, and the
author’s interviews with his surviving intimates, and visits to
his still-closed houses and palaces, STALIN: THE COURT OF THE
RED TSAR casts a new light on the character of Stalin himself.
It brings to the subject the texture of real humanity that was
missing from traditional biographies of Stalin.
