Abstract

The department of Party organs was one of the key units in the Central Committee apparatus of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) - the principal political, administrative, and ideological center in the Soviet system of governance. This chapter looks at the structure, personnel and main functions of the department, focusing on the Khrushchev period from 1953 to 1964. It also examines reasons for the eventual dismantlement of the system formed under Khrushchev, and the impact this had on the long-term reforms of the Communist Party.
