Stalin and The Scientists: A History of Triumph and Tragedy 1905-1953
The first epic history, long-listed for the The Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction, of how the Soviet Union’s scientists became both the glory and the laughing stock of the intellectual world. Simon Ings weaves together what happened when a handful of impoverished graduates, professors, entrepreneurs and charlatans, bound themselves to a failing government to create a world superpower, and shows how Stalin’s obsessions derailed a great experiment in ‘rational government’.
