(4),[v]-x,1-421,(1). 8vo, navy blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. East European Monographs, number 144. "'TheLatvian Impact on the Bolshevik Revolution' is the first full-scale study of the relationship in a Western language. Since 1918, the cognoscenti of the Revolution have asked the question: 'Could Lenin's government have stayed in power in its early years without the Latvian Strelki guarding it and fighting for it?' The role of the Latvian Strelki in stabilizing the Bolshevik government was well recognized in its day by Russians and Westerners alike, and it was only when Western historians of the Revolution began to write their works that the Strelki were shunted aside, placed on a deadened track and their role in the Revolution and the Civil War was forgotten. Ezergailis has complete command of the Latvian, Russian, and Western sources and has presented to us a unique work that will not only illuminate hidden recesses of the revolution but will also be a challenge for the Western historians who thought they knew everything about the event." - from the dustjacket.
