    A Very detailed study of the Soviet Gulag system from 1929 1941 This time period was a big turning point in Soviet prison infrastructure, as well as a huge turning point in Stalin reign in general Stalin enriched and transformed the really awful riminates of the czar s prison system into something truly frightening A little dry but incredibly interesting Khlevniuk uses lots and lots of declassified Soviet era documents to show how Stalin used the gulag system and how it all worked in the framework of Stalin s control of the Soviet State.
