His research seeks to understand how the greatest experiment of the 20th century, led by a movement that grew out of rational, enlightened, egalitarian, and democratic traditions resulted in dictatorship and the deaths of millions of its own people. Getty's recent books include Practicing Stalinism: Bolsheviks, Boyars, and the Persistence of Tradition and Yezhov: the Rise of Stalin's "Iron Fist".
