"Stalin not an example of a leader who established a single party state" Exam question help!!

Recommended Posts

In the markscheme from last years paper 2 is says " Please be aware that Stalin, would not be an appropriate example as he did not establish the single-party state in the Soviet Union. " as an answe to this question

Popular support, rather than the use of force, was vital to the establishment of single-party states.” With reference to two states, each chosen from a different region, to what extent do you agree with this statement?

 

is this true? can stalin not be used as an example? if that is true i have a major problem.....

Hey there,

As for that particular question, it is true that Stalin would be a bit of a strange person to choose, simply because he did not establish any single-party states. As you should know, Stalin got to power after a power struggle with Leon Trotsky, and he formalised his power in the end of the 1920s, but the Soviet Union, and the single-party state that he took control of, was established with Vladimir Lenin in the forefront as a result of the 1917 October revolution, some ten years prior. Stalin can be used as an example of a dictator, as a leader of a one-party state, as a lot of things, but not as someone who established a single-party state.

 

Hope that cleared things a bit, and good luck with your exams! Lykke til! :)
