United States and the Russian Civil War: The Betty Miller Unterberger Collection of Documents
This collection covers World War I and its immediate aftermath, concentrating on America's role in the Russian Civil War and early relations between the United States and the newly formed Soviet Union. Additional topics include Allied attempts to reopen the Eastern Front after the collapse of Imperial Russia, the breakup of the Austro-Hungarian empire, Allied intervention in Russia, the Czech-Bolshevik conflict, the clash of the United States and Japan in eastern Siberia, and U.S. policy toward Russia at the Paris Peace Conference. Consisting of approximately 10,000 documents pulled from over 50 repositories around the world, including the former Soviet Union, this material is the result of decades of research by historian Betty Miller Unterberger, renowned professor of American diplomacy and international history. Most of the collection is in English, with 80 percent of the foreign-language materials having been translated or accompanied by English-language abstracts. Each document is preceded by a control sheet produced by Professor Unterberger listing the sender, recipient, date, repository, and a brief description.
