The story of the Makhnovist secret service

by Vyacheslav Azarov


The Makhnovist movement was an attempt by peasants in southeastern Ukraine to create an anarchist society in 1917-1921. This unique social experiment embraced a substantial territory with a population of millions but has been little studied by historians.

In the years of revolution and civil war, the movement was protected from its numerous enemies by a remarkable military force — the Insurgent Army; and by an intelligence service — the Kontrrazvedka. It is the latter institution which is the subject of this study by Vyacheslav Azarov.

86 pp; includes translator's introduction, footnotes/endnotes, glossary, a chronology of the Makhnovist movement, photos, and a full colour map.
