The Communist Party of the Soviet Union

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

This is a major contribution to Soviet studies. Making very extensive use of documentary sources and the rich but scattered literature on the subject, Mr. Schapiro traces, with skill and a clear eye, the history of this unique political movement, analyzes the leading themes in its evolution and describes its organization, composition and leadership in the successive phases of its career.
