BASILY, Nicolas de. Abdication of Emperor Nicholas II of Russia : A Memoir by Nicolas de Basily. Prnceton, New Jersey : The Kingston Press, Inc., (1984). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xi,(9), [1]-209,(1). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine. "These are the memoirs of Nicolas de Basily, a highly placed member of the Russian foreign service in the years before the 1917 Revolution who drafted the abdication statement of Tsar Nicholas II. Basily, with a graceful and colorful style which has been ablv translated from the French, gives the reader a vivid impression of both domestic and foreign policv developments in Russia between 1900 and the revolution, paricularly in the last months of the monarchy. Knowing most of the principals personally, he is ible to give personal sketches and character judgments of all the leading politicians of the day, and there are particularly absorbing portraits of Count Witte and A. I. Guchkov. Basily, member of a long line of distinguished Russian diplomats, travelled in the high society of St. Petersburg. He was educated at the famous Alexander Lyceum in Petersburg, where he absorbed the prevailing liberal attitudeswhich he was to carry throughout his career. Although dissatisfied with th e slow oace of reform in domestic politics, he chose to keep aloof from these matters so that he could devote himself more fully to the foreign service. But the major significance of these memoirs are the observations on foreign policy, Basily's specialty. Alter 1910 the author became particularly interested in the control of Constantinople and the Turkish Straits, and much of the book is devoted to this problem. The Russian high command asked Basily in 1914 to prepare a memorandum on this subject with recommendations for action. The memorandum, entitled "On Our Goals in Reeard to the Straits"and appended to this volume, became the basis of Russian policy in that re gion until 1917. The book also includes a facsimile of the Tsar's abdication statement." (from the dj). Conten ts : Introduction. Photographs. 1. Childhood and Adolescence. 2. The Making of a Diplomat. 3.

67 BAUMANN, Robert F. Leavenworth Papers No. 20 Russian-Soviet Unconventional Wars in the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan
Combat Studies Institute, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, 1993, ISBN:0160419530 
BAUMANN, Robert F. Russian-Soviet Unconventional Wars in the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan. Leavenworth Papers Number 20. Fort Leavenworth, Kansas : Combat Studies Institute, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, (1993). Pp (2),iii-x,(1),1-219,(3). Illustrated. 4to, white card covers, black and maroon lettering. "The Soviet Union's agonizing decade-long struggle against a fiercely determined Mujahideen resistance in Afghanistan offers.a compelling illustration of the perils which can await a modern power that commits conventional forces against an unconventional foe in an undeveloped theater. That the Soviets embarked on such a rash course in 1979 isespecially striking in light of the American experience in Vietnam just a few years earlier and Russia's long historical involvement fighting Muslim tribesmen in the Caucasus and Central Asia. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Imperial Russia attempted to impose its authority on the Caucasus only to become embroiled in a protracted and brutal war against the mountain tribes of Dagestan. A charismatic leader, Shamil, emerged to harness the power of a formidable resistance that nearly foiled the Russian plan ofconquest, which was fulfilled only after decades of destructive and costly campaigning. Following the collapse of opposition in Dagestan in 1859, the Russians concentrated on the conquest of Central Asia as far as the Afghan and Persian frontiers. Here, vast steppes and deserts-formidable obstacles standing between Russia and the remote khanates-eventually yielded to the determination and methodical preparation of key Russian commanders. Established by a series of major campaigns from the 1850s to the 1880s, Russian rule in Central Asia remained stable until the Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917. With the collapse of imperial power, however, the empire dissolved.Efforts to impose Red rule over the former imperial possessions in Central Asia sparked popular resistance among the Muslim tribes and required massi ve intervention by the Red Army. The four episodes considered in this studyprovide useful perspectives on the nature of unconventional warfare, the a daptability of modern military institutions, the character of cross-cultural conflict, and the dilemmas inherent in the creation " (from the back cover). Contents : 1. Russian Subjugation of the Central Caucasus: The War Against the Mountaineers. 2. The Conquest of Central Asia. 3. The liquidation of the Basmachi Resistance, 1918—1933. 4. The Soviet-Afghan War. 5. Conclusions. Very good. 25.00

68 BAUMANN, Robert Fred Debates Over Universal Military Service in Russia 1870-1874
Yale University, New Haven, CT, 1982, 
BAUMANN, Robert Fred. The Debates Over Universal Military Service in Russia1870-1874. A Dissertation Presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of Yale University in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy. (New Haven, CT) : Yale University, 1982. Pp (3),ii-v,1-232 leaves, prinrted one-side only. 4to, duo-tang binding, blue card covers, unlettered. "The purpose of this study is to examine the course and substance of the debates over the implementation of universal military service in Russia during the period 1870 - 1874. Russia's dismal failure in the Crimean War forced Alexander II to make plans for the overhaul of the army. Yet it was not until 1870,following Prussia's compelling demonstration of military efficiency in the Franco-Prussian War, that the Russian War Minister, Dmitrii Miliutin, was able to muster enough support to implement the most important element of his reforms, universal military service. Debate over this dramatic step carried on for over three years from the time Miliutin issued his proposals. Thecentral forums of debate were two special commissions established by the T sar, which worked out the details of the new law, and the State Council. This study employs the journals and records of all three bodies. The debates reveal much about the state of the empire and the enormous social implications of reform. Particular attention is paid to problems of military manpower, privileges and exemptions and the impact of reform on the many national minorities of the Russian Empire." (Abstract). Contents : 1. Introduction :The Crimean War and the Background of Reform. 2. The Outline of Reform. 3. Reorganization. 4. Terms of Service. 5. Commission Debate on Privileges an d Exemptions. 6.

"After a distinguished career in the French Army (he was Deputy to Marshal de Lattre in Indo-China, Commander of the French forces at Suez in 1956, Deputy Chief of Staff SHAPE and French Representative on the NATO Standing Group in Washington) General Beaufre is now Director of the Institut Francais d'Etudes Stratégiques, recently set up in Paris to carry out fundamental research on strategic problems. He is therefore uniquely qualified to write on this subject.He has given us a thoughtful and thought-provoking book on strategy in whi ch the whole subject is penetratingly analysed and dissected. General Beaufre's theme is that strategy is a method of thought and a method which, in aworld neither at peace nor at war, should be applied, not merely to proble ms of defence but to politics, economics and diplomacy — in fact to all aspects of Government. War on the grand scale may perhaps be dead for ever butunless our methods of thought are modernized, we shall lose the so-called peace. This is not, therefore, a book simply for the student of defence problems. Anyone interested in world affairs will find it stimulating and challenging. It may well become a classic as a textbook in this branch of knowledge." - from the dj Chapters : 1. A General Survey of Strategy.

Originally published in 1966 by Armand Colin as Stratégie de l'Action. "General Beaufre is already well known as the author of Introduction to Strategy and Deterrence and Strategy. To complete the 'triptych' he now turns his logical and enquiring mind to the problem of 'Action' — governmental action in the field of international relationships. This is in a sense the counterpart of deterrence — preventing someone else doing something is deterrence, causing something to occur in spite of the reactions of others is 'action'. With his special brand of logic and lucidity General Beaufre shows that in present-day international relationships, with the spectre of nuclear war ever-present in the background, coercion is no longer a function of the military alone; all forms of pressure, ranging from 'diplomatic' procedures through economic and financial measures to war in all its graduated forms, must be combined into one co-ordinated action. It is General Beaufre's theme that this is most likely to be achieved if the strategic method of tnougnt is extended to a wider field. This is a book which should be read by all those interested in contemporary international relations. " - from the dj Introduction.

BENNIGSEN, Alexandre, and S. Enders WIMBUSH. Mystics and Commissars : Sufism in the Soviet Union. London : C. Hurst & Company, (1985). First Edition. Pp (5),vi-viii,(2),1-185,(3). Maps. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Sufism in the Soviet Union, as in nearly every Islamic environment, thrives in times of adversity ana the persecution ot mainstream Islam; currently it is undergoing a renaissance. Soviet authorities have been unsuccessful in either destroying Sufism or coopting it; they view it as a dangerous threat and, despite the difficulties inherent in identifying Sufis, have invested and continue to invest considerable resources in destroying the movement within the Soviet borders. Sufis view the Soviet regime with undisguised hostility. It is largely the result of Sufi ettorts that a laigc ana prosperous "parallel" or underground Islam exists in the Soviet Union removed from official control. Historically, Sufism in the Russian/Soviet empire has served as a catalyst tor Muslim dist movements. Nearly all Muslim resistance to Russian rule - from the eighteenth century to the present day — has been dominated by the Sufi orders. As clandestine bodies, the orders have an abikity to organise themselves and to direct their activities within the Soviet Union with considerable skill and effectiveness. While they do not pretend to pose an immediate threat to Soviet power, they represent an irritant ant to official efforts to control and coopt Islam in Soviet Muslim regions. In time of social change — as is becoming evident today — or of political turmoil, Sufism in the Soviet Union takes on more meaningful politicalcolouring At the very least, it ensures the survival of an Islamic traditi on, mustto the distress of Soviet planners. Mysics and Commissars identifies the phenomenos of Sufism in the Soviet Union and analyses it within the contexts of broader Islamic currents in the world and of Soviet domestic andinternational politics. The authors address the following questions in par ticular: What is Sufism in the Soviet Union and where did it originate? What are the main Sufi orders in the Soviet Union? How can we describe their salient characteristics and how do these differ from Sufi henomena elsewherein the Muslim world? How does the Soviet regime view Sufism? How is Sufism in the Soviet Union organized and expressed? Finally, the authors examine and detail the phenomenon of "holy places" - Sufi meeting grounds. There are several maps ot their major locations." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Introduction. 2.

"The Barents Sea, which harbour s the Soviet northern fleet, has been marked by military activity and East-West tension ever since the Second World War. In the early 1980's oil exploration in the Norwegian and Soviet sectors of the Barents Sea introduced a new factor of commercial as well as strategic importance to this area, and it is in the light of this change that this analysis of Soviet energy policy, military interests and needs is made. An assessment is made of the importance of the Barents Sea as an energy option for the Soviet Union, focusingon domestic demand for oil and also the needs of foreign trade, having reg ard to the effects of the Chernobyl disaster. A discussion follows of the conflicting military and civilian interests in the Barents Sea. The authors aim to improve Western understanding of the relationships between Soviet military and civilian interests, and the factors likely to influence Soviet decision makers in this area.
