This chapter describes Stalin's relationships with members of the ruling group during the period of reconstruction after World War II. What emerges is a picture of Stalin's relentless severity applied in equal measure to all members of the group, be they old Bolsheviks such as Molotov, second-generation functionaries such as Malenkov, or new recruits such as the younger Zhdanov. Despite the sharpness of some of these attacks, this period is characterized ironically by a sense of equilibrium within the leadership.

Keywords:   Stalin, leadership, ruling group, reconstruction, Molotiv, Malenkov, Zhdanov
