«Makhnovchina» a la russe: Anarchist A.A. Morev at the head of the Gorodetskij Soviet of Workers' and Peasants' Deputies (1918)

Cover Page


In the article the author basing on a fresh contemporary records about Alexej Morev, the Chairman of the Volost Soviet in Gorodets, attempts to observe the process of cooperation between the most radical revolutionary organizations - Anarchists, Left SRs and Bolsheviks - in the struggle for the political influence over the social «rank-and-files» in Russia at the beginning of 1918. Contrary to the description of Anarchists as «adventurers» and «extremists» generally accepted in historiography, the author demonstrates that praxis of some anti-Statists could serve as constructive basement for a social transformation.
