Revolution in Danger: Writings from Russia 1919-1921 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Upon his arrival in Petrograd in 1919, Victor Serge—the great chronicler of the Russian Revolution—found a society nearly shattered by civil war. In these essays he sketches a portrait of the darkest hours faced by the fledgling revolution, defending the new regime against its critics.

Book News Annotation:

Although he identified strongly as an anarchist, Victor Serge (1889-1947) came to side with the Bolsheviks in defense of the October Revolution of 1917 against its enemies and even to defend the regrettable necessity of Bolshevik terror due to the ruthlessness with which the Revolution's enemies were willing to act during the civil war, while still pleading for a synthesis of Bolshevism and anarchism. First published in 1997, this volume collects three essays Serge wrote in defense of the Revolution, "During the Civil War," "The Endangered City" (about the Revolution in Petrograd), and "The Anarchists and the Experience of the Russian Revolution."
