Description

    Nikita Khrushchev Booklet Signed "N. Khrushchev" on title page, np, nd. The book is titled: An Account to the Party and the People, Report of the C.C. C.P.S.U. to the 22nd Congress of the Party October 17, 1961. (Moscow: Foreign Languages Publishing House, 1961), 144 pages, soft cover flaps, printed in English, 5" x 7.75". Khrushchev's rise to power coincided with one of the darkest periods in Soviet history: the Great Terror. During the 1930s, Stalin began a series of bloody purges to consolidate his power. The terror spread throughout the Soviet Union, and Khrushchev was part of it, denouncing several fellow students and workers as enemies of the people and willingly taking part in the extermination of the Ukrainian intelligentsia. Eventually, Khrushchev would control the Communist party. In relations with the West, his tenure was marked by a series of high-stakes crises: the U-2 affair, the building of the Berlin Wall, and the Cuban Missile crisis. By 1964, he had alienated too many powerful Soviet constituencies. A group of men lead by Leonid Brezhnev ousted Khrushchev, and he retired to a dacha in rural Russia, where he died in 1971. The book is in fine condition; corners bumped and rounded; moderate edge wear to covers; all pages intact.
