Abstract : The report focuses upon the description of two major subgroups of the leadership strata in East European countries: those who compose the Central Committees, the Secretariats, and the Politburos; and those who were recruited into the Central Committees, the Secretariats, and the Politburos during four time periods in the political evolution of Eastern Europe. The time periods are the period of revolution, the period of Stalinism, the period of New Course, and the post New Course period. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between perceived system conditions in the four time periods and the career characteristics of the leadership groups. Because of the extensiveness and uniqueness of the data, a number of descriptive sets of data as well as change and constancy over time are used. (Author)
