The Neo-Communist Party of the Soviet Union was one of the few Marxist opposition groups in the USSR during the Brezhnev era.

After the merger the two groups ideologically enriched each other through bringing together the ideas of Trotskyism and "New Left" (mainly Herbert Marcuse, Che Guevara and Régis Debray) by PNC and the ideas of Existentialism (essentially, Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry) by the "Left School".

Right now the only English-language source I could find on this group is wikipedia. I did a google book search and found nothing. The Russian-language wikipedia and have some useful articles on Radical Left opposition in the USSR. ... viet_Union

Very interesting heiss, although you could say the article is a bit biased in the group's favour. The idea in the text that the group predicted the collapse of the KPSS and the USSR is just too much.
