Anti-revisionism is a position within Marxism–Leninism which emerged in the 1950s in opposition to the reforms of Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. Where Khrushchev pursued an interpretation of Leninism alternate to his predecessor Joseph Stalin, the anti-revisionists within the international Marxist–Leninist movement remained dedicated to Stalin's ideological legacy and criticized the USSR under Khrushchev and his successors as state capitalist and social imperialist, due largely to its hopes of achieving peace with the United States. The term "Stalinism" is also used to describe these positions, but it is often not used by its supporters.
