This chapter examines the relationship between the Bolsheviks and the intelligentsia by the end of 1917. The intellectuals who lived in Moscow and Petrograd under difficult conditions during the Civil War remained hostile toward the Soviet regime, but even those who came to accept the new regime were always suspect. The Soviet regime and the intelligentsia also had radically different views of the role of obshchestvennost', of the character of “public work” in a socialist society.

Keywords:   Bolsheviks, intelligentsia, obshchestvennost', public work, intellectuals, socialist society
