Chapter Summary

The Russian Revolution caused a good deal of anarchy and unrest, forcing the peoples in the North Caucasus to install their own political organs. A remarkable role was played by Turkey, which was the only state to recognize the Confederation of North Caucasian Mountain Peoples as a sovereign state. The political situation was partly put down in treaties, which are in order to evaluate the strength of the early state building process. The Transcaucasus was put under the jurisdiction of a Special Committee, composed of four Duma deputies, a Georgian, an Armenian, an Azeri and a Russian Duma deputy, to replace the Viceroy who had formerly governed the Transcaucasus, although real power was vested in the government in Tiflis after the Revolution.
