Three "whys" of the Russian Revolution
Vintage Canada, 1995 - 84 σελίδες
The second Barbara Frum Historical Lecture, Russia's Past and Russia's Future: The Burden of History, will be written and delivered by the world's foremost Russian History scholar.
Three Whys of the Russian Revolution is a complementary text to that lecture; a highly concise and valuable collection of three essays distilling the essence of Richard Pipes's acclaimed and bestselling books, The Russian Revolution and Russian Under the Bolshevik Regime.
Arguably the most important event of the twentieth century, the Russian Revolution changed forever the course of modern history. Due to the Soviet clampdown on archives regarding the Revolution, many aspects of the vent have been shrouded in mystery for over seventy years. However, since the collapse of Communism the archival depositories have been thrown open to interested parties.
Mr. Pipes has paid several visits to the archives and has, in Three Whys of the Russian Revolution, raised the central questions surrounding the revolution: why did Tsarism fall? Why did the Bolsheviks gain power? and why did Stalin succeed Lenin?
Three Whys of the Russian Revolution is valuable document for anyone trying to understand the complicated events taking place in modern-day Russia.
