Russia in Revolution

An Empire in Crisis, 1890 to 1928

S. A. Smith

  • The story of the Russian Revolution - a century on from 1917
  • An epochal event that transformed the Russian empire and profoundly affected the course of world history in the twentieth century
  • A panoramic account from the last years of the nineteenth century, through revolution and civil war, to the brutal collectivization and industrialization of the late 1920s
  • Reflects on the larger significance of 1917 for the history of the twentieth century - and what it might mean for us today
