Summary
"Communism's rise and eventual fall in Eastern Europe is one of the most important political conflicts of the 20th century. However, the infamous legacy of the Russian Revolution often overshadows the events of the 1917 uprising itself-the complications of which speak volumes to the resulting international turmoil. In Historically Inevitable, former British Ambassador to Russia Sir Tony Brenton compiles essays by top Russian historians-including Orlando Figes, Richard Pipes, and Dominic Lieven-to trace the events and ideology that overthrew the Tsarist regime and evaluate the true implications of the revolution. Formatted chronologically, the essays knit together the compelling narrative of the Russian Revolution, compiling a series of snapshots that capture the multifaceted nature of the uprising and, for the first time, present a counter-factual analysis of what might have gone differently. The course of the narrative takes into account the importance of various key players, such as Grigory Rasputin and Tsar Nicholas II, as well as the intricacies of the time and place. These interwoven details shed light on Vladimir Lenin's rise to power and the proliferation of his agenda, and evaluation of this process along with the effects of the revolution are used to evaluate contemporary Russian politics. Fusing the facts of the conflict with its accompanying drama, Historically Inevitable provides an in-depth exploration of a conflict that shaped our current geopolitical sphere. Thorough and engaging, the work untangles the complications of the past to help understand present and future events"--Provided by publisher
