Inessa Armand : revolutionary and feminist by Ralph Carter Elwood( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inessa Armand was the first Director of the Women's Section of the Russian Communist Party (the Zhenotdel). She was one of the most important women in the pre-revolutionary Bolshevik Party and second only to Alexandra Kollontai in the ranks of early Soviet feminists. Yet if Armand is mentioned at all in Western literature, it is solely as Lenin's protegee and probable mistress. In this political biography of Armand, the first to appear in English, Professor R.C. Elwood seeks to correct this picture by portraying her as an accomplished revolutionary propagandist and Bolshevik organizer before 1917 and as a feminist who devoted much of her life to defending women's interests in the home, in the workplace and in society. Based on unpublished police reports, memoirs, Armand's letters to her five children and two husbands, and Lenin's 118 published letters to her, this study provides new and revealing information on Inessa's up-bringing in the wealthy Armand family, on the revolutionary sympathies of many members of that family, on their subsequent and controversial financial support of the Bolshevik Party and on her career as a Tolstoyan and feminist long before she became a revolutionary. The author also examines Armand's stormy relations with Lenin and casts doubt on the veracity of earlier evidence that they had an extended love affair. Nonetheless Armand was a close friend of Lenin from 1909 to her death from cholera in 1920 and this biography also provides insights into the private life of the first Soviet leader--a man who was often patronizing, inconsiderate, rude and prudish, and from whose tutelage Armand spent many of her last years trying to escape

Resolutions and decisions of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union by Kommunisticheskai︠a︡ partii︠a︡ Sovetskogo Soi︠u︡za( )

10 editions published between 1974 and 2019 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set of four volumes is an indispensable reference work for the study of modern Russia in general and Soviet Communism in particular. Ever since its foundation on the eve of the twentieth century, the organization now called the Communist Party of the Soviet Union has been embodying its major policies in documents called 'resolutions and decisions.' These form a much more continuous and extensive record of the evolution of Soviet Communism than the writings of any single leader, and the standard Soviet anthology of these materials has gone through eight editions over a fifty-year period. Yet most of this essential material has been available only in Russian, and even in that language the standard editions have been marred by selectivity and editorial comment that is often politically motivated. At last students of modern Russian studies have access to a multi-volume work that not only presents the most important Communist Party resolutions and decisions in English, but also amplifies the standard Soviet anthology in important respects and provides editorial explanation that is independent of Kremlin politics. The rich store of materials in these four volumes ranges from the formation of the party to the fall of Khrushchev, and it deals with a wide range of issues. The clearly organized volumes each contain a major introductory essay as well as shorter background essays on each party congress, conference or Central Committee plenum. The documents approved by these meetings are often fundamental in importance, but the centralist operation of the party in power has been such that many of the most vital decisions have been issued in the name of the Central Committee when there was no meeting of that body at all. It is one of the signal achievements of these volumes that the selection of materials included was based on a list of all known part decisions, whether or not they have been included in the main Soviet reference work. The four volumes in this series are edited as an integral set. Each contains a subject index in which Russian abbreviations and acronymic names are translated. Tables summarizing the personnel of the main party executive bodies since 1917 are also provided. At the same time each of the volumes is built around a coherent period in the development of Russian Communism, and each reflects the special features of its time.Volume 1 treats the period before the October Revolution of 1917. It is the first collection of materials on the early evolution of the Russian Social Democratic Party that deals with the entire movement, so that the interaction of the various factions of the party may be understood as a whole and not merely in a partisan Leninist framework. This volume also breaks new ground in publishing in English vital records of Communist activity during the Revolution of 1917

Women and society in Russia and the Soviet Union by Ralph Carter Elwood( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until the late 1960s, most Western scholars studying the history, culture, social and political life and economy of Russia and the Soviet Union, paid scant attention to the participation and experience of women. The multifarious ways in which gender roles and perceptions of gender were influenced by and in turn influenced the heterogeneous cultures of the Soviet empire were largely ignored. However, this neglect has slowly been rectified and now the study of women and gender relations has become one of the most productive fields of research into Russian and Soviet society. This volume demonstrates the originality and diversity of this recent research. Written by leading Western scholars, it spans the last decade of tsarist Russia, the 1917 revolutions and the Soviet period. The essays reflect the interdisciplinary nature of women's work, women and politics, women as soldiers, female prostitution, popular images of women and women's experience of perestroika

Inessa Armand : revolucionaria y feminista by Ralph Carter Elwood( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inessa Armand fue la primera responsable de la sección femenina del Partido Comunista ruso. Fue una de las mujeres más importantes entre los bolcheviques antes de la revolución, y adelantada solo por Aleksandra Kollontái en el rango de las primeras feministas soviéticas. Aun así, si se menciona a Armand en la literatura occidental con frecuencia es tan solo para referirse a ella como la posible amante de Lenin.En esta biografía política de Armand, R. C. Elwood trata de corregir este retrato describiéndola como una consumada propagandista revolucionaria y eficaz organizadora bolchevique antes de 1917, y también como una feministaque dedicó la mayor parte de su vida a defender los intereses de la mujer en el hogar, el lugar de trabajo y en la sociedad. Basándose en informes policiales no publicados, memorias, autobiografías, las cartas de Armand a sus cinco hijos y sus dos maridos, y las 118 cartas publicadas que le escribió Lenin, este estudio proporciona un nuevo y revelador punto de vista sobre la bien posicionada familia Armand, el apoyo de algunos de sus miembros a la causa revolucionaria, su controvertida ayuda económica al partido bolchevique y sobre la trayectoria de Armand como seguidora de Tolstoy y feminista mucho antes de convertirse en revolucionaria. El autor también examina las tempestuosas relaciones de Armand con Lenin y pone en cuestión la veracidad de las pruebas que apuntaban hacia una larga relación amorosa.No obstante, Armand fue una gran amiga de Lenin des de 1909 hasta su muerte por cólera en 1920, por lo que esta biografía ofrece mucha información sobre la vida privada del gran líder soviético –un hombre que a menudo era condescendiente, desconsiderado, maleducado y mojigato y de cuya tutela Armand pasó muchos años intentando escapar
