$15.95

Quick Overview

The 1917 Russian Revolution was the most significant event of the 20th century. The taking of power by the
Russian working class under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky transformed the course of human
history and reverberates to this day.

Between February and October 1917 Russia was shaken by two monumental revolutions. The first overthrew
the Romanov aristocracy that had ruled for more than 300 years. The second overthrew the bourgeois Provisional
Government and established the first socialist workers state in history.

These events continue to generate debate and controversy. The essays in this volume, the second of two, are
unique in that they are written from a Marxist perspective looking back from the vantage point of 100 years
and putting the events of 1917 in a contemporary perspective under conditions of a world wracked by immense
social and political contradictions.
