October: The Story of the Russian Revolution by China Miéville

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC October: The Story of the Russian Revolution In February in the midst of bloody war Russia was still an autocratic monarchy nine months later it became the first socialist state in world history How did this unimaginable transformation take place How was a ravaged and backward country swept up in a desperately unpopular war rocked by not one but two revolutions .

This is the story of the extraordinary months between those upheavals in February and October of the forces and individuals who made so epochal a year of their intrigues negotiations conflicts and catastrophes From familiar names like Lenin and Trotsky to their opponents Kornilov and Kerensky from the byzantine squabbles of urban activists to the remotest villages of a sprawling empire from the revolutionary railroad Sublime to the ciphers and static of coup by telegram from grand sweep to forgotten detail .

Historians have debated the revolution for a hundred years its portents and possibilities the mass of literature can be daunting But here is a book for those new to the events told not only in their historical import but in all their passion and drama and strangeness Because as well as a political event of profound and ongoing consequence Mi ville reveals the Russian Revolution as a breathtaking story .
