What does Robert Service mean when he says:

"The problems of state organisation that had arisen in the 1930s remained unresolved. The party's role was yet again controversial and this time the protagonists were Zhdanov and Malenkov. Zhdanov wished to restore the party's role in selecting governmental cadres and in mobilising society whereas Malenkov opposed an increase in the party's authority and wished to keep the party organised along the lines of branches of the economy."

I get mostly what Malenkov's position is, but Zhdanov's seems to be a case where I understand what all the words mean individually, but not when they're written in that order.
