Krushchev's Secret Speech


This short piece by the brothers Medvedev, prominent Marxist Soviet dissidents, examines the circumstances and impact of the Kruschev Secret Speech to the 20th Congress of the CPSU. It was especially commissioned by Spokesman Books (Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation) for their edition of the Kruschev Speech printed to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the Speech. It is reprinted here from that edition, with the permission of the publishers.
