The Bolsheviks Come to Power: The Revolution of 1917 in Petrograd Cover Image


For generations in the West, Cold War animosity blocked dispassionate accounts of the Russian Revolution. This history authoritatively restores the upheaval's primary social actors--workers, soldiers, and peasants--to their rightful place at the center of the revolutionary process.
