Joseph Stalin as an Author

Joseph Stalin is famous for being the leader of the Soviet Union from 1922 until his death in 1953. Apart from transforming Russia from an agricultural society into an industrial power, he also wrote many books. Among them was “Economic Problems of Socialism in the USSR,” (1951) wherein he states that the Soviet Union has attained the first phase of communism; “Dialectical and Historical Materialism,” (1938) which discusses the Bolshevik Party’s principles on historical materialism; and “Anarchism or Socialism?” (1907) in which Stalin studies anarchism through a Marxist approach. He also wrote, “Marxism and the National Question,” (1913) where he states his definition of a nation. 

His other works of note are: “Dizzy with Success: Concerning Questions of the Collective-Farm Movement” (1930), “Foundations of Leninism” (1924), “Marxism and Problems of Linguistics” (1950), and “Falsifiers of History” (1948), which was written by the Soviet Information Bureau but was edited and partly rewritten by Stalin.
