Readings on the Russian Revolution: Debates, Aspirations, Outcomes (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Melissa K. Stockdale's Readings on the Russian Revolution brings together and contextualizes 16 of the most important writings on the history of the Russian Revolution. It is structured in such a way as to highlight key debates in the field and contrasting methodological approaches to the revolution in order to help readers better understand the issues and interpretative fault lines that exist in this contested area of history.

The book opens with an original introduction which provides essential background and vital context for the pieces that follow. The volume is then structured around four parts - `Actors and Agency', `War, Revolution, Empire', `Revolutionary Dreams and Identities' and `Outcomes and Impacts' - that ensure a detailed exploration of the beginnings, events and outcomes of the Russian Revolution, as well as examinations of the central figures, key topics and major historiographical battlegrounds.

Stockdale selects and individually introduces vital scholarship from leading US- and UK-based academics and also provides translations of two crucial Russian-language works, published here in English for the first time. The book also includes 20 images, 10 maps and useful pedagogical features, such as further reading lists, a glossary and a chronology, to further aid study.

Readings on the Russian Revolution is an essential collection for anyone studying the Russian Revolution.

Melissa K. Stockdale is Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma, USA. She is the author of Mobilizing the Russian Nation: Patriotism and Citizenship in the First World War (2016) and Paul Miliukov and the Quest for a Liberal Russia, 1880-1918 (1997). She is also the co-editor, along with Murray Frame, Steven Marks and Boris Kolonitskii, of the two-volume Russian Culture in War and Revolution, 1914-1922 (2014) and Space, Place, and Power in Russia (2010), along with Mark Bassin and Christopher Ely.
