Myth, Memory, Trauma

Yale University Press

This chapter argues that during the 1950s, Stalin's image continued to be manipulated, and even after the 22nd Congress, both in order to regulate de-Stalinization's unintended consequences and in order to instrumentalize the Stalin question to pursue domestic and foreign policy objectives, the latter dominated in the early 1960s by the worsening Sino-Soviet split and the abrupt rises and falls in Cold War tensions. The chapter explores the effects on commemoration of Stalin of the shift from anti-revisionism to ideological relaunch during the end of the Khrushchev era.

Keywords:   Stalin, image, de-Stalinization, Sino-Soviet split, Cold War, anti-revisionism, Khrushchev
