The Russian Revolution, 1900-1927 (Studies in European History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Service has revised and updated his popular book on the Russian Revolution, offering an integrated account of politics, sociology and economics. He has widened the focus out from 1917 so as to cover both the final years of the Romanov dynasty and the inception of the Soviet order. In a concise, lively style, the book provides an assessment of various basic interpretations of the Russian Revolution.

About the Author

Robert Service is Fellow of St. Antony's College, Oxford.
