In this book, distinguished scholars from East and West draw on recently opened archives to challenge the commonly held view that the Bolsheviks enjoyed widespread support and that their early history was simply a march towards inevitable victory. They show instead that during this period Russian society was at war with itself and with the Bolsheviks.
