Volin, 1882-1945 - Rudolf Rocker

A short biography of Russian anarchist, Vsevolod Mikhailovich Eichenbaum, commonly known as Volin, by Rudolph Rocker.

Vsevolod Mikhailovich Eichenbaum was born on August 11, 1882, in the district of Voronezh in Great Russia. So far as I know only one of his writings, a small booklet of Russian poems, was published under his real name, while all the others, and certainly his many articles and essays, were signed with his pseudonym. It is much easier to think and speak of him as Volin.

A short account of the life of a prominent exiled Russian anarcho-syndicalist, perhaps best known for his compilation of Bakunin's writings and also The Guillotine At Work - his epic survey of Bolshevik state repression from 1918 onwards.

Gregori Petrovich Maximov was born on November 10, 1893, in the Russian village of Mitushino, province of Smolensk. After studying for the priesthood, he realised this was not his vocation and went to St. Petersburg, where he graduated as an agronomist at the Agricultural Academy in 1915.

Anarchism and Sovietism - Rudolf Rocker

The Soviet System or the Dictatorship of the Proletariat

Perhaps the reader thinks he has found a flaw in the above title and that the soviet system and the dictatorship of the proletariat are one and the same thing? No. They are two radically different ideas which, far from being mutually complementary, are mutually opposed.
