I recommend reading Alexander Berkman's 'The Bolshevik Myth' on the suppression of in the early days of so-called Soviet power. Emma Goldman's 'My Disillusion with Russia' as a companion piece.

@acrata Sort of kind of related, check out Arif Dirilik's "Anarchism and the Chinese Revolution"

@salad_bar_breath Thanks for that. I have studied the Russian Revolution in some depth, but I'm not well informed on the Chines Revolution

@acrata It's great and very thorough. Dirilik's a really good historian. There's a lot of details to just how crucial anarchists were to the revolution and how they basically were screwed over by both the Bolshevik's and Mao's CCP which they helped both out significantly.
