THE POLEMIC ON THE GENERAL LINE OF THE
INTERNATIONAL COMMUNIST MOVEMENT

        The above-titled text is a collection of eleven documents (contents) published by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China between June 1963 and November 1964 in response to two critical letters directed at that body from the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. These documents constitute a further development in the struggle against modern revisionism initiated in the explicit critique of "Titoism" in the 1960 publication of Long Live Leninism! and extending here to the practice of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union that began to take shape at the 20th Party Congress of the C.P.S.U. in 1956. Included in the appendices to the Chinese documents are the two letters from the CPSU.
