The background to its emergence was the debate over strategies for Russian economic development. While Marx basically accepted, with modification, the Populist argument that Russia could move to socialism on the basis of its communal peasant traditions, the Russian Marxists from the 1880s insisted that Russia would have to take the path of capitalism and only then move on to socialism. The industrial growth of the Russian Empire in the nineteenth century, and in particular during the 'take-off' period of the 1890s, seemed to support the contention that the future lay with the working class and not the peasantry.
The ease of the Bolshevik victory in October 1917was belied by the delayed resistance to their rule breaking out in sporadic revolts. But this resistance was not coordinated from a single White headquarters comparable to the Bolshevik's integrated military command structure, and neither did they have a unified coherent social or political programme around which the anti-Bolshevik forces could rally or attract the mass of the peasants. The sporadic nature of the fighting was mirrored by shifts in Bolshevik internal policy, such as the launching of the red terror in September 1918 and the attempts to restrain it in early 1920.
By the end of 1920 Baron Wrangel's forces in the Crimea and Nestor Makhno's Green Army of peasant anarchists in the Ukraine had been defeated. There remained only the mopping-up operations of the so-called 'small civil war' of peasant uprisings, conspiracies, and urban anti-Bolshevik disturbances which continued into 1921. 92 At the same time, two points about the war should be stressed. First, the relatively limited scale offoreign intervention. While at one stage or another fourteen countries were involved, the actual numbers and resources committed to the war against Bolshevism were fairly small.
