Stalins theoretical writings are examined for the purpose of clarifying his accomplishments as an intellectual, and to demonstrate their relevance to any Bolshevik and Soviet patterns of thought. Soviet writing, encouraged by Stalin, long presented him as a master theoretician, without living peer in any field. The noticeeable tendency more recently, by his successors, to reduce reference to this and other roles of Stalin does not, nevertheless, seek to deny the earlier theme.
