The Fall of Khrushchev
From the paper:
Nikita Khrushchev’s fall from power came, not as a result of domestic factors, but because of the failure in his China policy. After Stalin’s death, Mao Zedong had, once again, attempted to move China away from the control of Moscow. To gain domination over China again, Khrushchev planned to use the war in Vietnam in the same way Stalin had used the Korean War: to bring China into conflict with the United States, thus forcing China into the Soviet camp.
