The Yale-Hoover series on Stalin, Stalinism, and the Cold War has published two new books titled Funding Loyalty: The Economics of the Communist Party, by Eugenia Belova and Valery Lazarev, both of whom were Hoover fellows, and The Stalin Cult: A Study in the Alchemy of Power, by Jan Plamper. “Funding Loyalty examines the Soviet communist party's financial operations and its budget from the 1930s through the 1960s, providing a fresh look at the evolution of the party and its role in the Soviet economy and society as a whole. [In The Stalin Cult,] Plamper establishes the cult's context within a broader international history of modern personality cults constructed around Napoleon III, Mussolini, Hitler, and Mao” (Yale University Press).
