Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"... an expert work... remarkable for its objectivity, judiciousness, and its sure handling of the available evidence." --Political Science Quarterly

"... a fine piece of historical writing." --Soviet Studies

"An able and scholarly inquiry into the perplexing abortive Petrograd uprising of June and July 1917... a very interesting view of revolutionary action on the local level." --Foreign Affairs

First published in 1968, this pioneering study of revolutionary events in Petrograd in the summer of 1917 revised the established view of the Bolsheviks as a monolithic party. Rabinowitch documents how the party's pluralistic nature had crucial implications for the outcome of the revolution in October.

Synopsis:

Alexander Rabinowitch's pioneering study of revolutionary events in Petrograd in the summer of 1917 challenges and revises the established view of the Bolshevik Party in 1917 as a disciplined, monolithic organization subservient to V.I. Lenin. Rabinowitch demonstrates that the abortive July uprising was organized by militant factions within the party against the wishes of Lenin. He concludes that the divided nature of the Bolshevik Party in 1917, in part the result of a rapid growth in grass-roots party membership, had crucial implications for the outcome of the revolution in October.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 236-252) and index.
