Anarchists in the Gulag (and prison and exile)

New article: Russian Anarchists in the Labour Movement in the Early 20th Century by Anatoly Dubovik

leave a comment »

In our native historical science the social base of the Russian anarchist movement in the early 20th century is traditionally regarded as being the petite-bourgeoisie. Thus, in works of the Soviet period a typical opinion is that of S. N. Kanyev, who noted that the dominant elements among the Russian anarchists were “the petit-bourgeois peasantry… small proprietors, handicraft workers and artisans, and also part of the intelligentsia”

 

But now we know better! Thanks to author Anatoly Dubovik and translator Malcolm Archibald, you can read this account of the class composition  – and activity – of the Russian anarchist movement from 1900 to the late 1930s on the Kate Sharpley Library website.
