This chapter analyzes the transcript of the December 10, 1925 Politburo meeting, and suggests that the political struggle between Joseph Stalin and the Left is linked to the problem of grain production. It explains that Central Statistical Administration chief statistician P. I. Popov became a target for removal during the meeting for his publication of material about potential grain sales in 1925 and 1926, which was used by Lev Kamenev as evidence of increasing social differentiation among the peasantry.

Keywords:   Politburo meeting, political struggle, Joseph Stalin, grain production, P.I. Popov, Lev Kamenev, social differentiation, peasantry
