6 September 2014

print version of this article print version

This is a working paper, the second in a series of ESAU studies assessing the effects of the Sino-Soviet dispute on certain key Communist parties. The paper tries to show how the development of a broad Sino-Soviet conflict in recent years has fostered pro-Soviet and pro-Chinese factionalism which now threatens to split the Indian party. The preparation of this paper has been greatly aided by the cooperation and assistance of several other analysts, LEE? I, Allen Whiting of the Special Studies especially Free World Group of the Department of State, and the analysts of the Radio Propaganda Branch of FBIS. the paper also reflect a debt to the work of Kautsky (Moscow and the Communist Party of India, New York, 1956). Overstreet and Windmiller (Communism in India, Berkeley, 1959), and Masani (The Communist Party of India, New York, 1954). We alone, however, bear responsibility for the conclusions reached in this paper
[The paper was written by Harry Gelman of Sino-Soviet Studies Group]
