This is a stimulating and highly original collection of essays from a team of internationally renowned experts. The contributors reinterpret key issues and debates, including political, social, cultural and international aspects of the Russian revolution stretching from the late imperial period into the early Soviet state. With a particular emphasis on historiography, this will be essential reading for an understanding of the driving forces of the revolution, of the role of individuals such as Lenin and Trotsky as well as the broader social and political landscape, and the impact the revolution had on the wider world.
