Clive James has a must-read piece in Slate on Grigory Ordzhonokidze, one of Stalin's lesser-known but more important henchmen, including reflections on the nature of power.

By the way, I highly recommend Simon Sebag Montefiore's biography of Stalin; I've got a signed copy that I bought at the Waterstone's on Oxford Street.
