The Bolsheviks and the national question, 1917-23

Jeremy Smith

The break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991 was the death of a multinational, federal system that had its origins in the first few years following the Russian Revolution of 1917. The Russian Bolsheviks had no blueprint for how to deal with the problems posed by a multinational state, and this period was crucial as they engaged in creating a system which would allow the nationalities of the old Russian empire to flourish and develop. In examining the nationality policies of Lenin, Stalin and the Bolsheviks, Jeremy Smith has made extensive use of archive material previously unavailable to western researchers. This book explores the creation of a system of territorially- based national autonomy, national forms of education, recruitment of non-Russians to the communist cause and the disputes surrounding the creation of a federal multinational state - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
