"On February 20, 2009 I interviewed Dr. Sergei Khrushchev, the son of the late Soviet Premier, Nikita S. Khrushchev. The following is the transcript of that interview. This is the second of two interviews that I conducted with the younger Khrushchev. This interview was conducted after the beginning of the spring semester in 2009 of my senior year. The purpose of this interview was more focused than the first as I had done extensive research on my undergraduate thesis topic. We discussed a number of events that pertained directly to Nikita Khrushchev's 1959 visit to the United States. We talked about the 1958 Berlin Crisis, East German recognition, receipt of the invitation for the American visit, goals for the trip, the beginning of the idea of peaceful coexistence, how Khrushchev felt the trip went, the effects of the visit on Soviet-American relations during this period."
