Helene Carrere d'Encausse is a professor at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques in Paris. Excellent essay on the use of and the intellectual 'reasoning' behind murder as a means to conquer or to keep political power in Russia.

Helene Carrere d'Encausse is a professor at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques in Paris. This book covers the whole history of Russia from Ivan the Terrible to Gorbachev. It evaluates brilliantly the writings of well known (Lenin, Trotski, Bakunin) but also of nearly forgotten revolutionaries (Pestel, Netchaev, Morozov, Heinzen and others). The author proves convincingly that the liquidation of former allies, opponents or whole segments of the population was not a characteristic of the Bolshevik regime alone.

By Hélène Carrère d'Encausse. For the general reader who wants an easily digested, sweeping essay on 500 years of Russian history, bound to a theme, this will be an attractive book. The theme is that Russian history remains at its core the ruthless and unresolved relationship between state and society, which, in turn, can be reduced to the place of murder in the exercise of power

Today, as we confront the social and political upheaval that has led to the disintegration of the Soviet Union, a deeper understanding of Russia's turbulent past is more essential than ever. In this fascinating book, Russian history unfolds as a "continuous history of political murder" as the author, Helene Carrere d'Encausse, focuses on this dramatic theme from its origins in Kievan Rus to the threshold of the Gorbachev era.Since the eleventh century - when dynastic murder was used to settle questions of inheritance and succession in Kiev - through the regimes of Stalin and Brezhnev, there has been a tragic relation between politics, violence, and terror. The Russian Syndrome's riveting narrative not only brings to life extraordinary personalities and events - Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, Bakunin, Rasputin, Lenin, the Stalinist terror, for example - but also serves as the framework for comparing and contrasting Russian historical patterns with those of Western Europe. Demonstrating in vivid detail the continuity and force of recurrent historical patterns that link the Soviet era with its prerevolutionary past, d'Encausse shows how terror and political violence, used by the tsars to consolidate their power and to unify the state, became the instruments of totalitarian successors as well as of those revolutionaries who aimed to destroy the state and bring about radical social and political change.Exploring the beliefs, ideology, and political culture of monarchs, dictators, revolutionaries, and reformers, this provocative and timely work illuminates the complex and traumatic course of Russian history as it sheds light on the Soviet state's enigmatic future.
