The Permanent Purge

The Permanent Purge

By Zbigniew K. Brzezinski

Harvard University Press, 1956, 256 pp.

As the title indicates this book--one of the studies of the Harvard Russian Research Center--studies the purge as a continuing phenomenon of a totalitarian order. It is the author's well-considered view that the purge is an indispensable device for the continuation of such a régime.
