The Bolshevik Myth by Alexander Berkman is an interesting primary source which sheds an insider's look at the earliest phase of Communism in Russia. Berkman was a long-time anarchist who was deported in from the United States to Russia.

The deportation was part of a mass deportation of leftist foreign radicals after the original "Red Scare Cited by: 5. The belief that Communism was a Jewish plot to destroy the nations of Europe took hold during the Russian Revolution and quickly spread.

During World War II, fears of a Judeo-Bolshevik conspiracy were fanned by the fascists and sparked a genocide. But the myth did not die with the end of Nazi by: 6. "The Bolshevik Myth--first published in is Berkman's account of the two years he spent in the Soviet Union, his meetings with Lenin, Trotsky, Kropotkin, and above all with the Russian people, the ordinary men and women who were suffering hunger, disease and persecution.

It is the story of chaos, bureaucratic incompetence and economic ruin. Suffice to say, the Makhnovist movement exposes the myth that "objective circumstances" are totally to blame for Bolshevik authoritarianism. It started before the start of the civil war and continued long after it -- as discussed in section H.6 of An Anarchist FAQ.

It struck me that there wasn’t a book that really dealt with the fact that the Judeo-Bolshevik myth was a recurring issue from one historical context to the next across the 20th century and that, by the time you get tothere’s empirical work tied up with memory work, and I wanted to see if I could unpack that.

References to the Judeo-Bolshevik myth and plot can easily crop up not only in book reviews, and scholarly debates but in contemporary politics as well. And while this occurrence is more surprising when expressed in the realm of scholarship, it certainly becomes more dangerous when articulated in the political one.

But it is a well-structured narrative with a clear overarching argument. What the book makes exceedingly apparent is that without understanding the myth of Judeo-Bolshevism, we will not be able to fully grasp the philosophy and motivations driving the extraordinary rise of violent right-wing antisemitism today.

Paul Hanebrink's A Specter Haunting Europe: The Myth of Judeo-Bolshevism is an intellectually unserious whitewash of the conspicuous role Jews played in international Communism. To have the audacity to make the claim that Judeo-Bolshevism, as it was known by its many tragic victims, was a "myth" is to deliberately ignore the voluminous Author: Expose The Nose.
