About the Authors
  • More than seventy years after the birth of the Soviet Union, the events that brought the Bolsheviks to power are still poorly understood. Ever since the first reports of the revolution reached Western audiences, analysts have blamed or credited Lenin and his party for overthrowing the old order singlehandedly. Yet studies of the revolution in recent years have revealed the depth of the crisis through which Tsarist society passed late in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The essays in this book address the process of worker alienation and the way that the Bolsheviks appealed to, rather than exploited, the working population, especially in the capital cities of Petrograd and Moscow.

    • A clear study of a central event in Russian twentieth century history
    • Explains the Revolution not only from the perspective of the cabinet minister but from that of the metalworker and factory employee
    • A comprehensive study intended for undergraduate and graduate use, as well as for the general reader
