REVIEW ON THE COLLECTION OF DOCUMENTS: UFA SOVIET OF WORKERS' AND SOLDIERS' DEPUTIES IN 1917: PROTOCOLS AND DOCUMENTS. ON THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF CREATION OF THE SOVIET OF WORKERS' AND SOLDIERS' DEPUTIES. AUTHOR-COMPLIER G.V. MORDVINTSEV. UFA: INFORMREKL

Abstract

In the review of the collection of documents prepared by the Candidate of Historical Sciences, corresponding member of the Academy of Military Sciences of the Russian Federation G.V. Mordvintsev, a comprehensive critical analysis of the presented publication was carried out.

It was concluded that the qualitative composition of the documents included in the collection reflects the objectives of the publication. The sources quite fully characterize the structure and competence of the Ufa Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies, reveal the main principles of its policy, the main directions and results of its activities and its relations with other actors of the political process. The publication also allows to determine the role and place of the Soviet in the revolutionary events of 1917 in Bashkortostan.

At the same time, the review noted the insufficient development of scientific and reference apparatus. The principle of selection of material and the archeographic processing degree of sources published in the collection by the author raise concerns. Another significant drawback is also almost a complete absence of author's comments on the content of published documents.

Despite the existing weaknesses, overall the publication prepared by G.V. Mordvintsev is evaluated positively. The peer-reviewed collection is a significant contribution to the development of the Russian historiography of the revolution of 1917 and allows to expand research issues.
