Three Whys of the Russian Revolution

Three Whys of the Russian Revolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Our foremost authority on Russian communism — the author of the definitive studies The Russian Revolution and Russia Under the Bolshevik Regime — now addresses succinctly the enigmas of that country's seventy-year enthrallment, asking: Why did tsarism collapse virtually overnight? Why did the Bolsheviks — the smallest of the Russian radical parties — triumph? Why did Stalin succeed Lenin?

In this splendidly incisive book, Pipes delivers the clearest picture yet of the vulnerability of the tsarist system as well as of the ruthless opportunism that enabled Lenin to seize the reins of power. He demonstrates the extent to which Stalin was the logical heir to a party that had assumed control over every aspect of Russian life. Lucidly argued, lively in its detail, Three "Whys" of the Russian Revolution is a brilliant summation of the life's work of a master historian.
