Reaction and Revolutions: Russia, 1881-1924 by Michael Lynch
This second edition aims to provide both a narrative and an analysis of the background, course and effects of the 1917 revolution in Russia. Beginning with an examination of Tsardom, the text describes the growth of revolutionary movements, analyzes the failure of government to modernize Russia, and concludes with a study and assessment of the impact of Bolshevism between 1917 and 1924. The book also incorporates the evidence relating to the Russian Revolution that has come to light since the collapse of the USSR in the early 1990s. Features include study guides, exercises, advice on tackling differentiated exam questions, points to consider and key issues and dates. The text is designed for A/AS level students and undergraduates.
