This second anthology of Russian writing on Russian music begins in 1880 (where the first volume concluded) and ends in 1917. It brings the thoughts of leading Russian music critics to an English-speaking readership as they react to the Russian music that is new to them, during a period when all aspects of musical life were developing rapidly. Music criticism had become more sure-footed, if no less opinionated. These reviews demonstrate greater awareness both of music history and of contemporary music abroad. The period covers the late careers of Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov as well as late works by Borodin and Balakirev, and the emergence of Mussorgsky's compositions. Works by the intervening generation, including Arensky, Glazunov and Lyadov, are also reviewed and the book concludes with coverage of works by the Moscow School, including Medtner, Rachmaninoff and Skryabin and the early compositions of Stravinsky and Prokoviev.

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.

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.
