Promotional Information

A milestone, an invaluable achievement, the natural heir to Leggett's history of the Cheka. -- John le Carre This first full-scale scholarly biography of the clever, cruel, domineering security chief whom Stalin once called 'my Himmler' casts valuable new light on various events of the Stalin period and its early aftermath. -- Robert Tucker, Professor Emeritus, Princeton University

About the Author

Amy Knight is a Senior Research Analyst at the Library of Congress and a former Woodrow Wilson Fellow. She is also the author of The KGB: Police and Politics in the Soviet Union.


"This smoothly written book is laudable, not just for its speculation on the Beria that might have been, but also for its naked portrait of the Beria that was."--David Gordon, Newsweek, International Edition "The first serious book-length study of Beria's public career... Knight's staidness and deliberation bring a refreshing change of approach... A major contribution to our knowledge of Soviet politics."--Robert Service, The Times Literary Supplement "Beria is ripe for revisionism. The danger is that too much can be made of Beria's relative liberalism... Amy Knight does not fall into this trap. Hers is a strictly political biography and a very good one."--Simon Sebag Montefiore, The [London] Times
