9780253319111: Memoirs of Peasant Tolstoyans in Soviet Russia (Indiana-Michigan Series in Russian & East European Studies (Hardcover))

Following the 1917 revolution, thousands of Leo Tolstoy's Russian followers―intellectuals and peasants, workers and former soldiers―inspired by his ideas about the great moral significance of productive labor, joined together in agricultural communes, believing that they would implement the ideals proclaimed by the Russian revolution: the building of a humane, stateless society, free of violence and exploitation. The goals of the Tolstoyans soon came into conflict with the policies of the Soviet state. With the forced collectivization of agriculture in the late 1920s, most of the Tolstoyan cooperatives were closed down; however, one group, the Life and Labor Commune, was permitted to relocate to Siberia, where it became a haven for Tolstoy's peasant followers until it, too, was shut down on the eve of World War II. Persecuted by the authorities and frequently arrested and imprisoned during the 1930s, members of the Life and Labor Commune persisted in their pacifist beliefs, vegetarianism, and commitment to farming.

The powerful and moving memoirs presented here throw light on a long-suppressed chapter in the hisory of Tolstoy's religious and social influence in the Soviet Union. They also document the history of the Russian peasantry from what appears to be a unique source―the peasants themselves.

Buchbeschreibung Indiana University Press. Hardback. Buchzustand: new. BRAND NEW, Memoirs of Peasant Tolstoyans in Soviet Russia, William B. Edgerton, Following the 1917 revolution, thousands of Leo Tolstoy's Russian followers - intellectuals and peasants, workers and former soldiers - inspired by his ideas about the great moral significance of productive labor, joined together in agricultural communes, believing that they would implement the ideals proclaimed by the Russian revolution: the building of a humane, stateless society, free of violence and exploitation. The goals of the Tolstoyans soon came into conflict with the policies of the Soviet state. With the forced collectivization of agriculture in the late 1920s, most of the Tolstoyan cooperatives were closed down; however, one group, the Life and Labor Commune, was permitted to relocate to Siberia, where it became a haven for Tolstoy's peasant followers until it, too, was shut down on the eve of World War II. Persecuted by the authorities and frequently arrested and imprisoned during the 1930s, members of the Life and Labor Commune persisted in their pacifist beliefs, vegetarianism, and commitment to farming. The powerful and moving memoirs presented here throw light on a long-suppressed chapter in the history of Tolstoy's religious and social influence in the Soviet Union. They also document the history of the Russian peasantry from what appears to be a unique source - the peasants themselves. The selections are by Mikhail Gorbunov-Posadov, Yelena Shershenyova, Boris Mazurin, Dmitry Morgachev, Yakov Dragunovsky, and Ivan Dragunovsky. From the introduction: These memoirs contain many grim pages about the harassment, persecution, arrests, torture, and years of confinement in labor camps suffered by the Tolstoyans; but along with all that, they also contain scenes of a very different kind - descriptions of Russian village life before the revolution, including the traditional matchmaking and wedding of one of the authors; scenes of the beautiful Siberian landscape in which the Tolstoyans relocated their Life and Labor Commune; a fascinating account of the initiative and ingenuity they showed in developing a new type of farming in that region; and, a series of encounters with the authorities that at times reveal the self-controlled courage of the Tolstoyans, occasionally some traces of humanity in their rulers and oppressors, and now and then the utter absurdity of the whole system.
