The Russian Revolution of 1917 is one of the crucial events of the modern era and is central to understanding the modern world and its history. The repercussions of 1917 are still evident at the beginning of the 21st century. Historians have long focused on the rise of Lenin and the Bolsheviks in the revolution, but the events of 1917 have been interpreted using other approaches: social, cultural or linguistic. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, increasing attention has also been paid to issues of nationality and ethnicity. bringing together key texts to illustrate the new interpretive approaches and covering the central topics and themes. Together, the chapters in this volume form a coherent representation of both the events and the theories and debates that relate to them.
