A Grand Cause

The Hunger Strike and the Deportation of Anarchists from Soviet Russia

G.P. Maximoff


This pamphlet, describing the hunger strike of anarchist prisoners in Soviet Russia in 1921, is taken from the writings of Grigorii Maksimov, secretary of Russia's Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation and himself a hunger striker. Upon release, he left the country and later produced a classic account of the Bolsheviks' destruction of the revolution, The Guillotine at Work. However, Maximoff wrote largely from memory, and this pamphlet is augmented by extensive footnotes, shedding new light on many of the people and events covered in the text. It also has an excellent biographical essay on Maximoff by Anatoly Dubovik, who has written extensively on Russian Anarchism.
