Any historian of the Russian intelligence and security services is bedeviled by questions of quantity and quality of information. This bibliography is a selection of relevant and important books and articles mostly in English and Russian that deal with the tsarist, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russian intelligence and security services. It does not include histories and memoirs unless they deal with the services directly. It also does not include general Soviet/Russian histories, military histories, or many of the Cold War memoirs by participants on both sides.
Until 1991, much of the information on the Soviet services and the most important cases came from dubious sources. Literally thousands of books have been written on the subject of Soviet intelligence—many of which are quite frankly useless to the modern scholar. For example, 12 books were written in Great Britain between 1953 and 1977 about the Soviet agents Donald Maclean and Guy Burgess: most of them frightfully inaccurate. Two of Kim Philby’s wives have written memoirs. Even much of the “factual” material scholars must rely on remains questionable: scholars have recently been able to establish that Stalin was born in 1878 not 1879, and that Nikolai Yezhov was born in Lithuania, not St. Petersburg. The death dates for many eminent Chekists are also in doubt.
Information on the number of victims of the Joseph Stalin era also remains a subject for bitter debate among scholars, as does the relationship between the Soviet security services and left-wing movements in the Western democracies. A French scholar, Stephanie Courtois, noted in a history of the crimes of communism that we have far less evidence of the crimes of Lenin and Stalin, and almost no photographs or films of the terrors of their rule: “Alas, we have only a handful of rare archival photographs of the Gulag. There are no photographs of dekulakization or of the famine. . . . The victorious powers could at least photograph and film the thousands of bodies found at Bergen-Belsen. . . . No such record exists in the Communist world, where terror has been organized in strictest secrecy” (Courtois, 36).
Evidence for this study had to be carefully reviewed, and this bibliography therefore had to exclude many interesting books. For example, there have been over a dozen books in Latvian, Lithuanian, Ukrainian, Russian, and German on the riots in the Soviet labor camps in 1953. Nevertheless, for readers interested in the subject, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago (1974) and Anne Applebaum’s Gulag: A History (2003) still provide the best accounts. Likewise, Pavel Sudoplatov’s Special Tasks (1994) is listed, but not his Spets operatsii (1995) and Razvedka i Kreml (1996), which are basically Russian versions of the English best-seller.
In the last 15 years, it has been possible to study the tsarist police and intelligence service from archives in the West and Russia. While some of the Russian archives may have been adulterated or purged during the Soviet period, historians are now far better able to gauge the effectiveness of the Okhrana’s operations against the revolutionary parties, and the professionalism of the tsarist military intelligence service. Another important trove of Okhrana material can be found in the Hoover Institute archives in Stanford, California. While there have been a staggering number of books on Soviet history since the dawn of the Cold War, few studies address the role of the security services in Soviet domestic and foreign policies. There are hundreds of memoirs of the inmates of forced labor camps as well as almost as many from defectors and émigrés. But general histories of the Soviet Union have little time or space for the security police, and few even try to define the role of the Soviet services in protecting the Communist Party and the Soviet state. As one outstanding Kremlinologist wrote near the end of the Cold War: “The Soviet security police, or KGB, looms as an uncertain variable for scholars, mainly because we have no commonly accepted conceptual framework to explain its role in the system. The KGB has never received much scholarly attention in the West . . . the dearth of serious scholarly research on the KGB has left a deep gap in how the Soviet system works and what factors influence Soviet decision making” (Knight, 1988, xvi).
There are some exceptional monographs on Soviet and post-Soviet intelligence: Amy Knight’s Beria: Stalin’s First Lieutenant, Michael Parrish’s The Lesser Terror, and Robert Conquest’s The Great Terror and Inside Stalin’s Secret Police have enriched us with their research, writing, and courage. Conquest’s books on repression, beginning with The Great Terror, forced both the academic community and the Western intelligentsia to consider the costs of the Soviet experiment. Revisionist histories in the 1980s tried to minimize repression and the number of victims, but the opening of the Soviet archives after 1991 showed that it was Conquest rather than his critics who was closer to the truth. Robert W. Stephan’s recent Stalin’s Secret War: Soviet Counterintelligence against the Nazis (2003), which mined Soviet, former Wehrmacht, and American records, is the first Western monograph on the “invisible front,” the intense battle between the Soviet and German secret services. Two recent histories of the first days of World War II have also successfully mined Soviet archives: David Murphy, What Stalin Knew: The Enigma of Barbarossa (2005), and Constantine Pleshakov, Stalin’s Folly (2005), are the best accounts in English of Stalin’s intelligence failure in 1941. Murphy’s book also uses GRU material effectively, detailing the operations of illegals in Europe and Japan.
The status of Russian archives has been a matter of concern to researchers and human rights activists. Many of the KGB archives were reportedly destroyed in 1989–1991. According to a press release, the KGB burned 583 archival files pertaining to Andrei Sakharov. Since the end of the Cold War some of the former Soviet archives have been opened and are being mined by scholars—Russian and Western. The Cold War International History Project, Louise Shelley’s Policing Soviet Society, and Anne Applebaum’s Gulag on the forced labor camps show what can be achieved by scrupulous research. Michael Parish’s The Lesser Terror, on the role of repression in Soviet politics after the Great Terror, is one of the best examples of how to mine and refine material from the Russian archives. There are several new books in English and Russian on Stalin’s relationships with the secret police based on archival research. Donald Rayfield’s Stalin and His Hangmen: The Tyrant and Those Who Killed for Him (2004) is a passionate account of Stalin’s personal and professional relationship with his security chieftains. Marc Jansen and Nikolai Petrov’s biography of Nikolai Yezhov is a particularly good monograph. Material in the Russian Soviet archives has also allowed Western and Russian historians to better understand the intelligence war between the Cheka and the foreign intelligence services. Archivists of the Federal Security Service (FSB) have written three histories of Russian special service operations in the Great Patriotic War. V. S. Khristoforov, the service chief archivist, used over 100 top secret documents to write Lubyanka in the Days of the Battle of Moscow (2002). The same team of archivists and historians has also written a history of Smersh. The new generation of archivists and scholars is to be congratulated for taking on difficult subjects such as the Red Terror and collaboration with the Germans during the early days of the war. There remain, however, important limitations for scholars of this field: many of the archives have not been opened or are only available by the whim of the archivists. The archives of the SVR, the FSB, and the GRU generally remain closed, though some documents have been released and published in documentary collections and on websites. While more is known about the Stalinist and post-Stalinist intelligence and security services, there are still major lacunae.
The role of Soviet intelligence in the United States and the United Kingdom remains a contentious issue. The best summary of the debate within academe is John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr’s In Denial (2003). There are two recent bibliographies of Elizabeth Bentley, the “Red Spy Queen,” as well as case studies of Judith Coplon and Harry Dexter White. Ethel Rosenberg’s granddaughter has recently produced a film biography of her grandmother. The Hiss and Rosenberg cases remain the subject of polemics and histories. The collection of Venona messages released in 1995—more than 2,400 decrypted and partially decrypted Soviet intelligence messages—indicates that Moscow believed most of the infamous Cold War spies were in fact Soviet agents. Some historians have continued to challenge this judgment, and it seems likely that the debate over Soviet espionage will continue.
Post–Cold War memoirs by former Soviet intelligence officers, diplomats, and politicians have added both heat and light to a history of the Soviet Union. There are books by Beria’s son as well as a number of men and women who survived the court of Stalin. Most of these books, while informative, contain some factual errors and do not cite specific documents to allow scholars to check specific claims. There are a number of good books by former Soviet intelligence officers in English and Russian. The FSB website ( contains an excellent annotated bibliography for the scholar of Soviet intelligence. Moreover, Christopher Andrews has written several monographs and two general histories of the KGB’s foreign intelligence operations using recent Soviet defectors. Nevertheless, we still lack a good institutional history of the GRU, good biographies of Viktor Abakumov, Yuri Andropov, Aleksandr Shelepin, and other important security chiefs, as well as a new look at Soviet national security decision-making.
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, a number of excellent websites have appeared on the Soviet intelligence and security services. The Federation of Atomic Scientists Intelligence Research Program ( provides useful though dated information on the Russian services. The Russian intelligence services have their own “informal” website ( in both Russian and English. Essays in the Russian language on this website provide detailed information on the organization, chronology, and personnel of the Soviet and post-Soviet intelligence and security services. Both the Russian counterintelligence and foreign intelligence services have their own websites ( and, which contain sanitized biographies of heroes and agents and accounts of operations against enemies foreign and domestic.
A website with detailed and accurate information on the Stalinist services is managed by Memorial, a Russian human rights organization ( .com). One entire section of this website is given over to a detailed history of the NKVD between 1934 and 1941, “Kto Rukovoditel NKVD, 1934–1941” (Who Led the NKVD, 1934–1941). The section includes detailed bibliographies of more than 500 senior security and intelligence officers. There are a number of good English, German, Polish, and Russian websites on forced labor camps: among the more interesting are the Open Societies Archives on the gulag system (, a German site on the northern camps (, and the Katyn website ( Poland-WW2/katyn). A good website on Russian strategy and tactics in the Great Patriotic War is Russian Battlefield (, which contains scores of documents in Russian and a few in English on Soviet intelligence in 1940–1945.
The best academic websites on intelligence during the Cold War are the Cold War International History Project ( and the Harvard Project on Cold War Studies ( Both contain a number of documents from the Russian archives and some outstanding analysis of the role of the Soviet services in both foreign intelligence and Soviet power politics. The Worldwide Socialist Web ( has an outstanding oral history program, and it often has a number of editorials and interviews with the remaining survivors of the Comintern and Trotsky’s Fourth International.
Western intelligence and security services now all have websites, which contain details about operations against the Soviet intelligence services and analysis of the Soviet threat during the Cold War. The National Counterintelligence Center ( has a four-volume history of American counterintelligence on its site, including detailed histories of many famous counterintelligence cases. On the CIA site (, the Center for the Study of Intelligence publishes studies by in-house historians and former intelligence officers, as well as by former Russian bureaucrats and intelligence officers. Among the best of the CIA in-house historians is Ben Fischer, who has produced a study of the Okhrana and an account of the Katyn massacre. The National Security Agency ( has published all the Venona messages, as well as essays by the men and women who worked on this signals intelligence problem.
