This article focuses on the display of disunity in the Communist world. Moscow, Russia's policy of rapprochement with Marshal Tito, Yugoslav Communist party leader, is regarded by Peking, China and its supporters as further proof of the fundamentally revisionist, anti-Marxian character of the Khrushchev group. Peking views the indecisive Soviet policy regarding the Sino-Indian conflict as a typical failure of Khrushchev to give full support to a fraternal socialist ally. And history may well record that the truly significant aspect of this great crisis in the Communist world has been the attitudes and policies of Asian Communist leaders.
