О курсе

The course presents the life and deeds of Joseph Stalin, the leader of the Soviet Union from 1924 till 1953. It analyses the reasons for his actions and their results, as well as the causes of his popularity in Russia today. It offers an analysis of the phenomenon of Stalinism and of its significance for Russia and beyond. In the late 1920s – early 1930s Stalin directed the massive and rapid industrialisation of the country and the forced collectivisation of its agriculture. The industrialisation was based on forced labour, and collectivisation on repression, but both helped to create the material base for the Soviet defence industry. In the late 1930s Stalin unleashed mass terror against the Soviet people, in which millions perished. In his view this helped to rid the country of any potential internal enemies on the eve of the coming war. The USSR, together with its allies, won the Second World War, but at the cost of dozens of millions of lives. Stalin was instrumental in creating the post-war order. The system which he created in the 1930s shaped the USSR as it was during his lifetime and for decades after his death. It also influenced the lives of millions of people beyond the Soviet borders. The course will enable those who take it to develop an informed understanding of the Stalin era and of the phenomenon of Stalinism. Do you have technical problems? Write to us: coursera@hse.ru...

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.

The course it's good, it covers the entire life of Stalin and his political rise to power. However, it lets some details out. Despite of this lectures are easy to understand and arranged in a logical chronology. I will like some more reading materials to follow with the course. Though there is a recommended book which I read.

Thank you professor Irina for sharing your knowledge with the world in this platform. In the United States there used to be a Spanish speaking radio station in which a program promoting socialism will run the voice of a woman saying "Viva Lenin, viva Stalin"(long live Lenin, Long live Stalin) every time they switch topics. I now have a clearer idea on what Stalin did and think the slogan shouldn't promote Stalin at all.

A very interesting topic not only for Russians as it is important for everyone to know how dictatorships and totalitarian systems emerge and why its citizens put up with such systems and how they become their willing helpers.

A mixture of peer-assessed essays and multiple choice items would have been better though than an assessment solely based on essays.

Lectures were a bit brief. although the lectures had pertinent info. I learned more doing research for the essays. There were around 10 essays of 300 to 400 words each. I enjoy writing so it was not a big deal. The prof. isn't very animated so sometimes it's a bit hard to concentrate on the lectures.
