Abstract:

The different kinds of purge employed in the Soviet Union to meet various political necessities are examined. Since the present Soviet leadership, with its parochial education, is intimately familiar only with the history of the Soviet Union since 1917, it quite naturally applies Soviet political methods to its management of the satellite countries. Thus an examination of the Soviet system of rule by purge will afford some understanding of events in the satellite countries and also some basis for prognostication.
