Overview

Guillotine at Work Vol. 1: The Leninist Counter-Revolution by Gregory Petrovich Maximoff

Originally published in 1940 in two volumes, this is the (partly eyewitness) account of the Leninist terror inflicted upon Russia. Maximoff, a life-long anarchist, fought in the Russian Revolution, organized with the metal-workers, and was imprisoned by Lenin's secret police in 1920 when he refused to join the Red Army (he was happy to fight the Whites, but not put down workers' and peasants' uprisings). Exiled, he wrote this incredible volume, in English. Over the course of nearly 400 pages, he recounts not only the Leninist terror and reaction against the popular revolution, but shows how the actions of Stalin followed deliberately in h is master, and mentor's footsteps. Volume 2, unfortunately never reprinted, was a collection of supporting documents/primary evidence. Regardless, this volume stands alone as a stunning, and sadly relevant indictment of the Bolshevik terror. This is the original American edition of the Cienfuegos Press edition, published here in America in 1979.
