Hey guys,

I'm doing my History coursework and I'm a little stuck.

Basically my coursework question is: 'Was Stalin mainly motivated by Ideology or by increasing Russian power' - and I have to use passages to answer it.

However, on Passage D it says 'But there were moments - and the years 1946-7 are one of them - when if one knew little of Bolshevik doctrine, it would be possible to make a reasonably good sense of Soviet policy...'

I assume this is referring to the Soviet Famine of 1946-7, but I don't know how this relates to Stalin wanting to increase Soviet power.

Could you help me out,

Thanks

Famine was due to collectivisation wasn't it? That was done to increase the power of the state. Not sure if that's what your after

Basically, I want to know why this particular event in Soviet History shows that Stalin was motivated by power rather than ideology. I think it was mainly due to the war and drought btw.
