    Concentrating on the turbulent months from February 1917 to November 1918, Geoffrey Swain explores the origins of the Civil War against the wider background of revolutionary Russia.

  • Trotsky and the Russian Revolutionby Geoffrey Swain

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 33.51

    Without Trotsky there would have been no Bolshevik Revolution, but Trotsky was no Bolshevik.

  • A Short History of the Russian Revolutionby Geoffrey Swain

    I.B.Tauris 2017; US$ 29.00

    In 1917 revolutionary fervour swept through Russia, ending centuries of imperial rule and instigating political and social changes that would lead to the formation of the Soviet Union.

  • From Recognition to David J. Smith; David J. Galbreath; Geoffrey Swain

    Editions Rodopi 2010; Not Available

    Taking its cue from the 90th anniversary commemorations of November 2008, this work explores the relationship between state and nationhood during the three phases to date in Latvia’s existence as a territorial entity: the sovereign statehood of 1918-1940; the Soviet and Nazi occupations of 1940-1944 and the ensuing half-century within the USSR; and... more...

  • The Russian Civil Warby V.P. Butt; Geoffrey Swain; A.B. Murphy; N.A. Myshov

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2016; US$ 50.35

    Russia's experiences during the Civil War determined the framework within which the Russian people were governed throughout the Soviet period.

In this collection the authors... more...
