Stalin's Defectors

Mark Edele

Oxford University Press

This chapter follows the history of defection from early debates among émigrés and western scholars in the developing Cold War to contemporary historiography. It also traces the changing Soviet debate about defection from the war to the present. It shows that current scholarly debates both in Russia and abroad are deeply entwined with this history itself. The chapter also serves as a historical genealogy of the position taken in this book. Tracing a possible convergence between the western historiographical school originating in post-war émigré discussions and newer Russian scholarship, it also documents the extent to which these two traditions remain separate.

Keywords:   émigrés, second emigration, Soviet history, historiography, displaced persons (DPs), Second World War, defection, prisoners of war, Red Army, Wehrmacht
