Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an excerpt from the author's autobiography. After the February Revolution, he began work in Zlatoust with his old Urals friends. The organisation succeeded everywhere in taking power and nationalising the enterprises of the Simsky mining region. In the summer of 1918, he took part in putting down the uprising by the Left S-Rs, and was slightly wounded in the left temple during the attack on the Central Telegraph. Following the liberation of the Urals, he did party- and sovietwork in Ufa and was then elected to the Ninth Party-Congress. At the Congress, he was elected to the Central Committee, who selected him as one of three secretaries. The author was also one of the editors of Pravda, and apart from some minor pamphlets and many articles the journal, his works included Anarchism and Communism, On Morals and Class-Norms, and The New Economics.
