Steve Smith

European Revolution

Author of many works on the Russian and Chinese Revolutions, Steve Smith focuses today on the game-changing events triggered on the edge of Europe in 1917. Drawing upon newly opened archives and research from Russian historians into the long-term effects of the Bolshevik uprising, he analyses how this social, economic and political transformation dramatically altered the lives of everyone from peasants to military personnel and the religious to non-Russians.
