The Communist Party of the Soviet Union
The Communist Party of the Soviet Union
By Boris Meissner and John S. Reshetar, Jr.
Praeger, 1956, 276 pp

This book comprises, in effect, an essay by a leading German scholar on the Nineteenth Party Congress and its aftermath, a briefer piece by Mr. Reshetar on the Twentieth Congress, a list of members of the Central Committees as of 1956, plus Party statutes and some Soviet articles. Helpful for Kremlinologists but already being overtaken by events.
