Abstract. This paper arises out of the work that I am currently concluding on the final volume (7) of the RWDavies series The Industrialization of the USSR: The Years of Terror and Preparation for War. The work on that volume is being carried out by R.W. Davies, Mark Harrison, Oleg Khlevnyuk and myself. I am responsible for the sections on agriculture and demography in the volume, and hence my interest in this topic.
How did the purges of the leadership groups in TsSU and NKZem proceed? What explains the differences and their timing? Both can be seen to have specific local reasons, but they were also part of a general chaotic process of the time. Although it would be wrong to try to identify a simple rationale for this complex event, the study of how the purge of the leadership unfolded in different organizations, may tell us something about the nature of this process, as well as its impact in those organizations.
