Defining Stalinism

In defining Destalinisation, it's imprtant to define Stalinism.

My favourite definition comes from Thatcher, who defines Stalinism in six crucial elements:

- Dictatorship of one man
- Dominant ideology
- Cult of Personality
- Use of Terror
- Aggressive Foreign Policy
- Command economy

Learn this; any essay on Stalinism will require you to know it!
