ABSTRACT

Following the Soviet Union’s disintegration, one of the most frequently formulated research postulates related to the history of Russian Revolutions and Civil War was to present the events of 1917–1922 from a regional perspective. 2 This goal has now been largely achieved. After 1991, an array of important publications have thrown light on the specific provincial characteristics, showing what the revolution and the civil war meant for Saratov, Vyatka, Kazan, areas populated by Don Cossacks, and other regions. 3
