Abstract : An analysis is given of the social class composition of various Communist Party congresses, and some of the ways that the Soviet Union favors its new middle class are described. For instance, the progressive principle in income taxation stops at 1000 rubles per month, checking accounts earn interest at 3 per cent, and inheritance taxes are very light. The chapter headings are: The party cadres; party elite; nationality question; role of women in the party; and position of the intelligentsia in Soviet society.
