A Companion to the Russian Revolution

Tower Center Fellow Dr. Daniel Orlovsky edited a compendium of original essays and contemporary viewpoints on the 1917 Revolution. The Russian revolution of 1917 reverberated throughout an empire that covered one-sixth of the world. It altered the geo-political landscape of not only Eurasia, but of the entire globe. The impact of this immense event is still felt in the present day. The historiography of the last two decades has challenged conceptions of the 1917 revolution as a monolithic entity- the causes and meanings of revolution are many, as is reflected in contemporary scholarship on the subject.
