From the Mission Statement
of Set the Record Straight:
“Set the Record Straight is
an educational project that takes
on the distortions and misrepresentations
about the ‘first wave of socialist
revolutions’ in the Soviet Union
(1917–56) and in China (1949–76).
What were these revolutions actually
setting out to do? What were the extraordinary
achievements of these revolutions
in the face of great obstacles? What
were their real mistakes and shortcomings?
And what in fact is communism?”
