Summary
"A century ago, the three-hundred-year-old Romanov dynasty was toppled, replaced first by an interim government and then by the world's first self-proclaimed socialist society. This was no narrative of ten earth-shaking days but one of months and years of compounding strife, a struggle for power by competing ideologies and regions and classes and political parties and ethnicities, all rushing to fill the vacuum left by the collapse of the tsarist regime, brought down by the First World War. For seven years, through war, revolutionary upheaval, and civil strife, one Russia replaced another; old institutions and ways of life were wiped away or adapted to new purposes. Engelstein brings to life the events that sparked and then fueled the revolution as it spread out across the vestiges of an entire empire--from St. Petersburg and Moscow across the Steppes, the Caucuses, and Siberia, to the Pacific Rim."--Provided by publisher
