How valid is the view that Stalin emerged as leader of Russia because he was able to present himself as the true heir of Lenin?
This is due in on Friday and haven't started it yet, have no idea where to!
My 4 paragraphs were going to be; Stalin's personality, structure of the party, other contenders and ? (any ideas for this one?).
Any help would be much appreciated, as would any links to useful sites or quotes etc.
Thanks!

Here's a couple of questions which might help you get started.

1) Do you think that Stalin was able to portray himself as the true heir of Lenin?

2) Do you think the above was more important in securing his position as leader than other factors?

Look at Lenin's Testament and how he held this back. Look at his actions towards others contenders such as Trotsky and how he manipulated photos (in one photo he adds himself sitting next to Lenin and removes entire groups of people in some of them). Read Lenin's letters (available for free online) to Stalin to get a better understanding of his position during the revolution and immediately after.
