July 01, 2016

The successful October Revolution of 1917 marks the high point of the working class movement. But a few short years later it was hollowed out, and within a decade became a totalitarian regime.

Suggested Readings:
Year One of the Russian Revolution by Victor Serge (Haymarket Books 2015).
