Course Description:

Historian R.R. Palmer wrote: "No less powerful than the First World War as a force in shaping the twentieth century was the revolution in Russia, of which the decisive step was the seizure of power by the Bolshevik party in November 1917. The Russian Revolution of 1917 can be compared in its historical magnitude with the French Revolution of 1789." But how did the Revolution happen and why did it take the course it did? With all the competing ideologies, how did the Bolsheviks manage to come out on top? How were the ideas of Marx, Engels and Lenin shaped by circumstance and by the eventual dictatorship of Joseph Stalin? Steve Henrikson examines these questions and more as we explore the powerful effect of the Russian Revolution on the subsequent history of the twentieth century.
