Rex Wade presents a new account of one of the pivotal events of modern history, combining his own long study of the revolution with the best of contemporary scholarship. Wade recasts the political history of the revolution while giving due space to its social history. He incorporates people often omitted, including women, national minority peoples, and peasantry front soldiers, enabling a richer and more complete history to emerge. The story is narrated with pace, verve, and exceptional clarity; the chronology, maps and illustrations give further support to the reader.

"This work is, without a doubt, the best single-volume treatment of the 1917 revolution ever published in English." Slavic Review
"As the author of numerous books and articles dealing with the Russian Revolution, Wade...is well qualified to undertake the survey...In many respects, the book compares with Edward Acton's Rethinking the Russian Revolution (1990) but, overall, it presents a broader and more complete view. It would be a useful addition to any college library and an excellent text in upper-division courses." History: Reviews of New Books
"A convenient and reliable guide to the Revolution for the student and the informed reader." Choice
