The Last Days of Stalin: Death of a Dictator
We're all familiar with what happen if the president of the United States dies while in office, but the Russian people had no such comfort when Joseph Stalin collapsed at home in 1953. Joining us is Joshua Rubenstein, author of “The Last Days of Stalin.” He is here to take us inside the world of fear, confusion, and political jockeying that surrounded Joseph Stalin’s final hours. —Original airdate: 2/1/2018
