Millenarian Bolshevism 1900-1920: Empiriomonism, God-Building, Proletarian Culture

David G. Rowley

Millenarian Bolshevism 1900-1920: Empiriomonism, God-Building, Proletarian Culture by David G. Rowley

Millenarian Bolshevism had its origins in a debate between positivist and idealist Marxists at the turn of the 20th Century. This book, originally published in 1987, charts the development of Millenarian Bolshevism by studying the careers of Bogdanov and Lunacharsky and analyzing their relations with Lenin, Gorky and other left Bolsheviks. In discussing their relationship with Lenin, the author maintains that the millenarian Bolsheviks gave expression to the voluntarist, idealist spirit which was inherent in the program and organization of Bolshevism and which provided the philosophy of Soviet...

Makers of the Russian Revolution: Biographies

Georges Haupt & Jean-Jacques Marie

Makers of the Russian Revolution: Biographies by Georges Haupt & Jean-Jacques MarieUntil the publication of this book in 1974, the leaders of the October Revolution remained very badly known. This book exhumes the autobiographies written by the men whose actions and ideas have moulded events. Unique as sources of documentation on the Bolsheviks, these autobiographies, encompassing personal and political information up to 1917 add an important historical dimension. They allow the reader to appreciate more accurately the role played by each of the protagonists in preparing and carrying out the Revolution and beyond this they put the Bolsheviks of 1917 in the context of their...

Stalin's World War II Evacuations: Triumph and Troubles in Kirov

Larry E. Holmes

Stalin's World War II Evacuations: Triumph and Troubles in Kirov by Larry E. HolmesIn the face of the German onslaught in World War II, the Soviets succeeded, as Molotov later recalled, “in relocating to the rear virtually an entire industrial country.” It was an official declared “one of the greatest feats of the war.” Focusing on the Kirov region, this book offers a different and considerably more nuanced picture of the evacuations than the typical triumphal narrative found in Soviet history. In its depiction of the complexities of the displacement and relocation of populations, Stalin

Bolshevism and the Labour Movement

Robert Hunter

Bolshevism and the Labour Movement by Robert Hunter

Originally published in 1916, this volume discusses the history of the labour movement during the latter part of the 19th and early part of the 20th centuries, in so far as it relates to the advocacy and use of violence. A contentious issue which divided the labour movement during the 129th century, the author presents arguments made by both sides of this controversy. Nonetheless, the book remains a Marxist critique of violence as practised by direct action anarchists.

Margaret Miller

The Economic Development of Russia 1905-1914: With Special Reference to Trade, Industry, and Finance by Margaret MillerThis book, originally published in 1926 but updated in 1967 analyses Russia's economy in the decade preceding the outbreak of the First World War.

Holy Rus': The Rebirth of Orthodoxy in the New Russia

John P. Burgess

Holy Rus': The Rebirth of Orthodoxy in the New Russia by John P. BurgessA fascinating, vivid, and on-the-ground account of Russian Orthodoxy's resurgence

A bold experiment is taking place in Russia. After a century of being scarred by militant, atheistic communism, the Orthodox Church has become Russia's largest and most significant nongovernmental organization. As it has returned to life, it has pursued a vision of reclaiming Holy Rus': that historical yet mythical homeland of the eastern Slavic peoples; a foretaste of the perfect justice, peace, harmony, and beauty for which religious believers long; and the glimpse of heaven on earth that persuaded Prince Vladimir...

Russia: And the Struggle for Peace

Michael S. Farbman

Russia: And the Struggle for Peace by Michael S. FarbmanWritten in 1918, this volume attempts to give an un-biased account of the Russian Revolution and what it stood for, by asking to what extent the Revolution was the result of the War and how far the struggle for peace which followed the Revolution was inherent in it. It discusses whether or not the peace policy of the revolutionary democracy expressed the true purpose of Russia at the time or were the soviets really alien to the people and to the Revolution. It also questions whether the disintegration of Russia and the dissolution of the Russian Army inevitable.

The Jewish Revolution in Belorussia: Economy, Race, and Bolshevik Power

Andrew Sloin

The Jewish Revolution in Belorussia: Economy, Race, and Bolshevik Power by Andrew SloinJewish life was changed fundamentally as Jews joined the Bolshevik movement and populated the front lines of the revolutionary struggle. Andrew Sloin's story follows the arc of Bolshevik history but shows how the broader movement was enacted in factories and workshops, workers' clubs and union meetings, and on the Jewish streets of White Russia. The protagonists here are shoemakers, speculators, glassmakers, peddlers, leatherworkers, needleworkers, soldiers, students, and local party operatives who were swept up, willingly or otherwise, into the Bolshevik project. Sloin stresses the fundamental...

This volume, originally published in 1930, discusses the economics of Russian agriculture during the early 20th century.

The Moscow Uprising of December, 1905: A Background Study

Joseph L. Sanders

The Moscow Uprising of December, 1905: A Background Study by Joseph L. SandersThis book, originally published in 1987, focuses on the factors which contributed to the Moscow uprising of December 1905, by comprehensively surveying a vast field of both Russian and English language literature on the subject. In order to explain why the uprising occurred in Moscow when it did, the author discusses the contributions of the Bolsheviks, the Mensheviks, the Soviet-Revolutionaries and the government, concluding that the uprising happened at that time because the parties were committed to it and agitated for it and the local government in Moscow was not in control of the situation....

Communist Daze: The Many Misadventures of a Soviet Doctor

Communist Daze: The Many Misadventures of a Soviet Doctor by Vladimir A. Tsesis

Welcome to Gradieshti, a Soviet village awash in gray buildings and ramshackle fences, home to a large, collective farm and to the most oddball and endearing cast of characters possible. For three years in the 1960s, Vladimir Tsesis-inestimable Soviet doctor and irrepressible jester-was stationed in a village where racing tractor drivers tossed vodka bottles to each other for sport; where farmers and townspeople secretly mocked and tried to endure the Communist way of life; where milk for children, running water, and adequate electricity were rare; where the world's smallest, motley parade became...

City of Lions

Jozef Wittlin & Philippe Sands

City of Lions by Jozef Wittlin & Philippe SandsThe Ukrainian city Lviv's many names (Lviv, Lvov, Lwow, Lemberg, Leopolis) bear witness to its conflicted past - it has, at one time or another, belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Poland, Russia and Germany, and has brought forth numerous famous artists and intellectuals. My Lwow, Jozef Wittlin's short 1946 treatise on the city he left in 1922, is a wistful and lyrical study of an electrifying cosmopolis, told from the other side of the catastrophe of the Second World War. Philippe Sand's essay provides a parallel account of the city as it is today: the cultural capital of Ukraine, its...

Historians and Historical Societies in the Public Life of Imperial Russia

Vera Kaplan

Historians and Historical Societies in the Public Life of Imperial Russia by Vera KaplanWhat was the role of historians and historical societies in the public life of imperial Russia? Focusing on the Society of Zealots of Russian Historical Education (1895-1918), Vera Kaplan analyzes the network of voluntary associations that existed in imperial Russia, showing how they interacted with state, public, and private bodies. Unlike most Russian voluntary associations of the late imperial period, the Zealots were conservative in their view of the world. Yet, like other history associations, the group conceived their educational mission broadly, engaging academic and amateur historians,...
