Guide to the Decisions of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union 1917–1967
A ‘decision’ of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union occupies a central place in the party and in the Soviet system. At times, it is the internal law of the party, at times the command issued by the party to some branch of the state or society. Scholars have long been aware of the importance of these documents in the study of all aspects of soviet affairs, but there has not hitherto existed – even in Russia – any systematic compilation of decisions, or any listing of bibliographic sources. This book lists, in chronological order, the almost four thousand CPSU decisions made from 1917 to 1967. Each entry indicates where the entire text of the decision may be found, and an index locates decisions by subject area. The listing and index are in Russian. An introduction in English explains the nature of party decisions and their place in Soviet politics.
