An impassioned firsthand account of the Russian Revolution

An American journalist and revolutionary writer, John Reed became a close friend of Lenin and was an eyewitness to the 1917 revolution in Russia. Ten Days That Shook the World is Reed's extraordinary record of that event. Writing in the first flush of revolutionary enthusiasm, he gives a gripping account of the events in Petrograd in November 1917, when Lenin and the Bolsheviks finally seized power. Containing verbatim reports both of speeches by leaders and of the chance comments of bystanders, and set against an idealized backdrop of soldiers, sailors, peasants, and the proletariat uniting to throw off oppression, Reed's account is the product of passionate involvement and remains an unsurpassed classic of reporting.

About the Author

John Reed (1887-1920), a journalist and poet-adventurer who became the hero of a generation of radical intellectuals, is buried with other Bolshevik luminaries beside the Kremlin wall.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin né Ulyanov (1870-1924) became the first head of the Soviet Union and the primary theorist of his own variant of Marxism.

A. J. P. Taylor (1906-1990) was a renowned English historian and author.
