Siberian Makhnovshchina


Manufacturer: Black Cat Press

Product Information

"The Russian Civil War (1918–1924) in Asiatic Russia was like the Americna Wild West as one regime after another tried to establish its rule over the freedom-loving peasants and miners of the West Siberian plains and mountains. A key role in this struggle was played by the partisan armies put together by anarchists, which fought first against the Whites, then against the Reds.

Like themore famous Ukrainian peasant movement led by Nestor Makhno—known as the Makhovshchina—the Siberian anarchists aimed to establish free federations of rural communes and worker-managed industrial enterprises. Long ignored or stigmatized as bandits by soviet historians and their nationalist successors, the siberian anarchist-partisans are rescued from oblivion in this pioneering study."

Igor Podshivalov (1962–2006) helped to revive the anarchist movement in Russia as the Soviet era came to a close. A dedicated anarcho-syndicalist, he worked as a journalist in Siberia for many years while researching anarchist history.

Translated by Malcolm Archibald. Black Cat Press, 2011.
