The Communist Party of the Soviet Union

By Boris Meissner and John S. Reshetar, Jr.
Praeger, 1956
276 pp. $5.00

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.
