Rex A. Wade presents an essential overview of the Russian Revolution from its beginning in February 1917, through the numerous political crises under Kerensky, to the victory of Lenin and the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution. This thoroughly revised and expanded third edition introduces students to new approaches to the Revolution's political history and clears away many of the myths and misconceptions that have clouded studies of the period. It also gives due space to the social history of the Revolution, incorporating people and places too often left out of the story, including women, national minority peoples, peasantry, and front soldiers. The third edition has been updated to include new scholarship on topics such as the coming of the Revolution and the beginning of Bolshevik rule, as well as the Revolution's cultural context. This highly readable book is an invaluable guide to one of the most important events of modern history.

This book gives voice to the experiences, thoughts, and feelings of ordinary Russian people - workers, peasants, soldiers - as expressed in their own words during the vast upheavals of 1917. The documents in the volume are selected from the State Archive of the Russian Federation in Moscow and other Russian collections and most have never been published before. They include letters from individuals to newspapers, institutions, or leaders; collective resolutions and appeals; and even poetry written by self-taught, lower-class authors.

This history of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in Petrograd (St. Petersburg), first published in 1976, is probably most notable in the emphasis author Rabinowitch (emeritus, Russian history, Indiana U.) places on the relationships between the Bolshevik party leadership, the rank and file of the party, and the masses. The author downplays the role of party discipline in gaining power, suggesting that the party's decentralized, democratic structure and mass character in 1917 were major factors in winning over the support of workers and, crucially, military troops.
