I think there is confusion

I think there is confusion here.

There are two references to Leonard Schapiro as anarchist. I never read his work. But I think it was an academic, an expert on Russia. Certainly, the confusion was made because of Alexander Schapiro, who was a Russian anarchist. If I'm wrong, correct me.

correction

Thanks for pointing this out. You are right, Leonard Scapiro was an academic and not an anarchist.

Any comments on the general content of the article?
