About This Item

New York: W. W. Norton. Trade Paperback. 1974. N724. Near Fine. Interior unmarked. Spine straight, tight, and uncreased but sunned. Foxing to edges. Not from a library. No remainder mark. 271 pages.

In March 1921 the sailors at the Kronstadt Naval Base rose in revolt against the Bolshevik government which they themselves had helped into power. Under the slogan of "free soviets" they established a revolutionary commune that survived for sixteen days until it was crushed by the Red Army. In the aftermath, many foreign Communists questioned their faith in a government which could deal so ruthlessly with genuine mass protest.
