It was a revolution that would change the world by bringing about the global transition from capitalism to communism in a single generation--or so its supporters believed. Vladimir Lenin and the Bolshevik Party hoped to carry humanity into a new day of equality, justice, and freedom. Toward this end, they brought down the Russian tsarist government in October 1917 and began a vast political experiment that ended more than 70 years later in a way neither Lenin nor his followers would have ever anticipated. The Bolshevik Revolution not only marked the end of Old Russia, but it also set in motion a chain of events that would create a half-century-long rivalry between the East and West that defined the second half of the 20th century. In The Bolshevik Revolution, learn about the key players and events of this tumultuous time in Russian history.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up—Davenport's lucid exposition of the 1917 Russian revolution argues that the Bolshevik movement devolved into a "blatantly imperialistic" police state with little resemblance to the ideals of Lenin and the Communist party founders. The drama of the early struggle between reformist and revolutionary factions plays out compellingly, and the author offers some unusual turns of phrase, such as, "Bolshevik economic promises faded completely into a dull haze of shared hardship." While most of the focus is on the first half of the 20th century, the author makes brief mention of Putin's Russia and a return to "authoritarian" politics. This title, which includes numerous color and black-and-white photos, is for readers who are interested in gleaning more than the basic facts for a report. A cut above the average text for this audience.—Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
