The Makhnovist movement was an attempt by peasants in southeastern Ukraine to create an anarchist society in 1917–1921. This unique social experiment embraced a substantial territory with a population of millions but has been little studied by historians.

In the years of revolution and civil war, the movement was protected from its numerous enemies by a remarkable military force—the Insurgent Army—and by an intelligence service—the Kontrrazvedka. It is the latter institution which is the subject of this study by Vyacheslav Azarov, a present-day Ukrainian anarchist.
