Program Number


Series Description

Historical survey hosted by Abram Sachar, Brandeis University. Series release date: 1973

Program Description

“Soon after Tito and Partisans expelled the Nazi invaders from Yugoslavia and established a strong Communist state, he repudiated the control of the Kremlin. His action was more that a Quarrel over the specific issues that had arisen between him and Stalin. It represented the difference between centralized power in a monolithic Communist world organization, and a decentralized structure in which the various segments of the Communist bloc enjoyed full autonomy. Tito’s heresy was bitterly fought by Stalin and, afterwards, by Khruschev, but ultimately the Kremlin had to yield. Tito for the next quarter century not only retained his dominance in Yugoslavia, but became the symbol of the deviationist principle that shattered the monolithic structure of international Communism and made it ‘poly centric’.”
