            Under the name Yokhanen Hakanai, he edited (with Z. Sinani) Fragn fun program un taktik, ershte teyl (Questions of program and tactics, first part) (Geneva: Party of Socialist Revolutionaries, 1905).  Grigori Aronson has informed us that this was the pseudonym of Nosn Gezentsvey, an activist for the Socialist Revolutionaries.  Another of his pen names was Zaratustra.
