This book is a richly detailed account of the Russian Revolution from the fall of the Tsar in March 1917 to the introduction of the New Economic Policy in March 1921. The author draws on interviews and on other kinds of now unavailable documents to produce a work that remains a unique view of early Soviet Russia. Originally published in 1987. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
