The Kronstadt Commune by Ida Mett A6


Still considered one of the best histories of the Russian revolutionary failure and the Kronstadt uprising. A new version by us as an A6 size booklet.


Ida Mett’s history of the Kronstadt uprising highlights one of the most important yet neglected events of the Russian Revolution.

The suppression of the most revolutionary section of the Navy by the Bolsheviks was the final blow to any hope of a genuine revolution based on democratic workers’ control. Mett dispels many of the contemporary mistruths put forward by Bolshevik propagandists and includes a number of original sources from the commune.
