Review from previous edition A lucid and indeed instantly classic explanation of the revolutionary spirit in its pre-1917 and Lenin-then-Stalin dominated stages. (Tribune)
A welcome new edition of this classic history, a triumph of concision and incise analysis by a scholar who knows more than almost anyone about the early years of the Soviet system. (Orlando Figes, Birkbeck College, London, and author of A People's Tragedy: The Russian Revolution, 1891-1924)
A succinct, insightful, and highly original interpretation of the Russian Revolution as a process of social transformation lasting from 1917 to 1937... Fitzpatrick gives us a challenging rethinking that will shape our discussions for years to come. (Ronald Suny, University of Michigan)
A beautiful little introduction to the topic. This is a fine work for introductory students, as well as for general readers looking for a window into the Russian enigma. (Robert V. Daniels, University of Vermont)

If this brief introduction whets your appetite, then the extensive reading list proves more than adequate to satisfy your intellectual curiosity.
And they're pocket size to boot, making them handy for reading on the train or bus. With hundreds of topics to choose from, I cannot recommend these books enough.
As with other books in the 'A Very Short Introduction' collection, this little piece is excellent! It's written in a very accessible way that makes it easy to follow and understand. It explains the chronology of the Russian Revolution from 1905 until post- civil war, and has all the facts there in the palm of your hand. Parts of it are almost written as a narrative which makes it easy to dip in and out of, and it is small enough to fit in any bag or briefcase for on-the-go reading! As far as a starting point for investigating the Russian Revolution, there is no better place than this book!
Super fast delivery (arrived before the suggested delivery date).

Provides a good starting point for any reading or study of russian revolution. Nevertheless, should only be used as a basic book and further reading is definately needed.Published on 26 Feb. 2012 by Laura Stewart
I do think that russian revolution is very interesting but this introduction was painfully boring due to the writing. I had to force my way through it.Published on 7 Oct. 2011 by Anonymous Kate
