Abstract

The 1956 Soviet military intervention in the domestic affairs of the Hungarian People's Republic and an apparently similar invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 appear to provide anti-Communists with "ammunition" to be used against Moscow's utterances of "peaceful co-existence".

However, a more than cursory observation of the two situations, along with a study of the nature and development of the Kremlin's 1956 and 1968 "weltanschauungs" presents an incredibly complex picture.
