Bread and Justice

Mary McAuley

Oxford University Press

The three years of revolution and civil war that ensued robbed the city of its busy commercial centre, its markets and shops, and, with its industry now nearly silent, no one in 1920 spoke any longer of renaming it Proletargrad. But in the spring of 1921 its workers took to the streets to protest against their conditions of work and the government's polices, a protest that then found a stronger echo in the neighbouring Kronstadt naval base. This chapter shows how the actions of rulers and ruled in the crisis of the spring of 1921 were governed by their perceptions of the city's social and political order, and by the political framework forged in the civil war.

Keywords:   civil war, commercial centre, naval base, social order, 1921, working population
