Looks at the roots of what has been described as the most important political event in the history of the twentieth century, from the emancipation of the serfs in 1861 to the Bolshevik uprising in 1917.


' … a concise and informed survey, cogently argued and splendidly written. The author succeeds in providing one of the best short introductions to the five and a half decades of Russian history leading up to 1917 currently available.' - John Channon, Slavonic and East European Studies Review
