BEYOND KRONSTADT; THE BOLSHEVIKS IN POWER BY MARK KOSMAN
Another in a long line of windy pieces for Theoretical Weekends at Scission. This one delves into what went wrong with the Russian Revolution and is full of lessons for today.
It is from, where else, the great library at lib.com.
NOTE: I would suggest that the analysis done by my old comrade, Tom Clark, and which I serialized at Scission several months ago is a much better and deeper analysis going beyond the usual, "it was just bad policy" line. The work STATE AND COUNTER REVOLUTION can be found in its entirety at http://www.marxists.org/history/erol/ncm-1a/tom-clark/index.htm
