So this was exactly contemporary with the Makhnovshchina in southern Ukraine and other "free territories" in Siberia.

Also, having flicked through to its conclusions, the faults it finds give ammunition to the Bolshevik case, that had a bolshevik style party taken Georgia, they might have withstood the Russian invasion.As a brief account of perfidious Albion's role and of colonialism/imprialism in the region, it is usewful, though.
