520 2  In 1929, Joseph Stalin, having already achieved 
       dictatorial power over the vast Soviet Empire, formally 
       ordered the systematic conversion of the world’s largest 
       peasant economy into “socialist modernity,” otherwise 
       known as collectivization, regardless of the cost. What it
       cost, and what Stalin ruthlessly enacted, transformed the 
       country and its ruler in profound and enduring ways. 
       Building and running a dictatorship, with life and death 
       power over hundreds of millions, made Stalin into the 
       uncanny figure he became. Stephen Kotkin’s Stalin: Waiting
       for Hitler, 1929–1941 is the story of how a political 
       system forged an unparalleled personality and vice versa.
