Decline and Fall of the Romanov Dynasty: The October Manifesto
The Penguin history of modern Russia : from Tsarism to the twenty-first century by Service, Robert
Call Number: NFS 947.08 SER
Publication Date: 2009
Russia by Ronald Hingley
Publication Date: 1991-08-17
Russia's history, from her beginnings as a pagan Slav community centered on Kiev to superpower status, has its own unique rhythm. Appalling calamities have shaped Russia: the Time of Troubles; the Napoleonic invasion; two world wars separated by a great civil war; a multitude of famines and epidemics. Not least among these scourges have been leaders such as Ivan the Terrible and Joseph Stalin. In this revised and updated edition, Ronald Hingley considers the recent astonishing developments: the first steps towards liberalization, the collapse of communist rule throughout Russia's former satellite states, and above all the demise of Soviet communism and the disintegration of the USSR. Russia's present can be better comprehended as the latest chapter in a long and enthralling history; a history—evoked here with the aid of over 200 illustrations—which is now being energetically reassessed by the Russians themselves.
This episode of Ten Minute History (like a documentary, only shorter) covers the late Russian Empire under Tsar Nicholas II all the way to the USSR just before World War II. The first part of the Episode covers the social and political issues and changes until the February Revolution. The second part covers the October Revolution and how Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin established the Soviet Union and how things changed. Without a doubt, the Russian Revolution was one of (if not the) most important event of the 20th century.
Overview of the Bolshevik Revolution and the end of the Romanov Dynasty.
Hoping to placate his citizens, the emperor issued his October Manifesto, offering up several political concessions, most notably the creation of an elected legislative assembly known as the Duma.
