"Delving into a vast array of documentation to which few other historians have had access, this study illuminates a revolution that started out with the rosiest of prospects but ended up utterly confounded. More than just the incredible exploits of a guerilla revolutionary par excellence, Skirda weaves the tale of a people, and the organizations and practices of anarchism, literally fighting for their lives."--Jacket
The struggle against the state & other essays by Nestor Ivanovich Makhno( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born of peasant stock in Gwlyog-Polye, Ukraine, Nestor Makhno became an anarchist after the Russian Revolution of 1905. Sentenced to death for armed struggle, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. Liberated in 1917, he organized an army of anarchist resistance against both the Bolsheviks and the White counter-revolutionaries. Throughout his period of struggle, he consistently advocated the creation of anarchist communism in the most difficult and impractical of conditions. Forced to flee by the Bolsheviks, he eventually ended up in exile in Paris. Marginalized and impoverished, in poor health as a result of wounds sustained in fighting against the Whites and the Bolsheviks, and time spent in prisons inside tsarist Russia before the Revolution and in Eastern European prisons en route to exile afterwards, Nestor Makhno wrote occasional essays in self-vindication and in vindication of the peasant insurgent movement that bore his name. Published primarily for fellow-exiles, these essays ranged from the theoretical and analytical, establishing him plainly as a deliberate as well as a visceral anarchist, to challenges thrown out to his enemiesincluding some Jewish anarchists - to produce proof of the alleged anti-Semitism of his movement in revolutionary Ukraine. He remained politically active, contributing to Delo Truda and other papers, and helped create the Organizational Platform Of The Libertarian Communists. Makhno was determined that the next time anarchism, acting in the light of experiences dearly bought, revamped and more disciplined thanks to its Organizational Platform, might reap the rewards proportionate with the commitment and sacrifice of its activists. Nestor Makhno died from tuberculosis on July 25, 1934, aged 44. The essays in this volume date from his period in exile."--BOOK JACKET

Au coeur de la Révolution : mes années de Russie, 1917-1927 by Marcel Body( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "Limougeaud, né dans une famille ouvrière, Marcel Body devient apprenti typographe. La mort de Tolstoï en 1910 lui fait découvrir l'oeuvre de celui-ci, et il se met à apprendre le russe. Cette connaissance du russe lui vaudra, une fois sous les drapeaux, de faire partie d'un groupe d'instructeurs qui arrive en Russie après la révolution de février 1917. A la fin de l'été 1918, avec trois autres membres de la Mission militaire française qui, comme lui, désapprouvent l'intervention armée de la France contre le pouvoir soviétique, il rejoint le tout petit groupe de communiste français créé à l'instigation des bolcheviks pour mener une action de propagande en faveur du nouveau régime. Plongé dans l'action au cours des années de révolution qui suivent, il n'en garde pas moins un regard critique sur les événements et, surtout, sur les conditions de vie de la population. De la guerre civile, notamment en Ukraine, à la préparation et à la tenue des premiers congrès de l'Internationale communiste, puis à son affectation au ministère des Affaires étrangères, il rend compte de façon vivante et personnelle. En 1921, quoique déjà critique vis-à-vis de l'évolution du régime, il est nommé à la représentation soviétique à Olso. A partir de 1922, il y travaillera aux côtés d'Alexandra Kollontaï, militante de premier plan de l'opposition interne du Parti communiste soviétique qui s'était manifestée au cours des années précédentes. Ayant pu revenir en France en 1927, il sera exclu du Parti communiste l'année suivante. Traducteur en français de textes de Lénine et de Trotski, il se rapprochera plus tard des milieux libertaires et traduira les oeuvres de Bakounine. Rédigé en 1980 avec le concours d'Alexandre Skirda, ce livre de Marcel Body est un témoignage de premier ordre sur les événements et la vie quotidienne de la période révolutionnaire et sur l'évolution du régime."
