This audio recording is the first of a series of six New School Associates luncheon lectures held at the New School for Social Research in 1966, entitled "Foreign Correspondents View 1967." New School Associates event chairperson Julia Crews commences the event by acknowledging VIP attendees and introduces Thomas P. Whitney, who begins his remarks at 5:09. He discusses his observations of recent changes in the Soviet Union in terms of urbanization, decentralization of authority, liberalization, popular attitudes, and cultural trends. Crews opens the floor to questions at 43:25, which include Soviet attitudes toward China, the importance of Allied intervention in Russia in 1918, the Sinyavsky–Daniel trial in 1966, Soviet attitudes toward religion, the status of education in the USSR, Soviet development of the social sciences, and Soviet foreign policy.
