Description

Excerpt from The Great Pretense: A Symposium on Anti-Stalinism and the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party; May 19, 1956 The significance of anti-stalinism cannot be discerned in the specific internal conditions which may have precipitated its adoption; a ri valry for power within the Kremlin, severe pressures arising from a conflict between the Army and the Party, deep rumblings in the areas incorporated forcibly into the Soviet political structure and still aspiring for a return to independence. None of these in itself, nor all together, provides a total explanation despite the appeal they have to those who are inclined to regard the slightest tremor as presaging the disintegration of the Soviet totalitarian state.
