His theoretical conceptualizations use a wide range of impulses from historical, sociological, and psychological angles of view. This broad opening of possible and fruitful perspectives constitutes one of the most valuable parts of the book. It becomes evident, that the cult was to enable, to support, and to implement the establishment of Stalinist states and societies in newly occupied regions.
At the same time, the cult cemented an imperial hierarchy, where Moscow constituted the uncontested center. Besides, it remains to be seen, whether debates of perceptions of the Stalin cult by the German man in the street win by the use of regional or local archives.
In these multiple contexts, Ulbricht had to secure his own personality cult against emerging criticisms, but at the same time could seize the opportunity of greater latitude to strengthen his position against factional and public challenges. In this context, the projects called for new endeavours and held the promises of a golden future for loyal socialist citizens—measured by standards of a more or less capitalist consumerism. Obviously, the Stalin cult could neither eliminate nor completely conceal inherent contradictions of the Soviet project.
Mikhail Zygar's excellent, in-the-moment retelling of the 2 a long time that prefigured the loss of life of the Tsar, his family members, and the complete imperial edifice is a charming drama of what could have been as opposed to what was once hence noticeable as inevitable.

The part about his ascent to power was a bit boring, but it's a short and eminently readable book. The part where the author explains how, under Stalin, references to Communism and Marxisms were slowly purged and substituted with "homeland", "fatherland", and "Mother Russia" gave me chills.
