Georgi Dimitrov: A Biography
AuthorMarietta Stankova
PublisherI. B. Tauris, 2010
Notes, Keywords

Georgi Dimitrov burst onto the international scene in 1933 as one of the Comintern operatives in Germany accused of the Reichstag fire. The Bulgarian Communist’s spirited self-defense in the resulting Leipzig Trial made him a celebrity among Communists worldwide, particularly in the Soviet Union, where he became Secretary General of the Comintern after his acquittal. This lucid and fascinating biography--the first in English--reveals a more multifaceted treatment of Dimitrov, highlighting especially the deep complexity of his relationships with his two greatest political allies: Stalin and Tito.Using new and unpublished sources, Marietta Stankova brilliantly reconstructs the dilemmas that Dimitrov faced throughout his long and varied political career. This definitive and long-overdue biography makes a major contribution to the history of Bulgaria and of the Balkans as a whole, as well as to the field of Communist Studies.

Marietta Stankova studied modern European history at the Universities of Sofia, Budapest and Oxford. She obtained her PhD from LSE, where she has also taught extensively. She has written widely on Bulgaria, the Cold War and Communism and is an experienced researcher in the archives of Russia and Bulgaria and Britain.
