Abstract : The aims of Mr. Sidney I. Ploss are to identify the individuals, interest groups, and government bodies that have participated in important decisions and to analyze their attitudes and manoeuvres on such questions as the virgin lands program, abolition of machine tractor stations, conversions of collective farms into state farms, and decentralization of agricultural planning. Ploss is charged with accepting Krushchev as a 'good guy', disregarding evidence that casts doubt on Krushchev's competence and liberalism and imputing only base motives to his opponents.
