WIKIPEDIA

“A People’s Tragedy: The Russian Revolution, 1891-1924″ is an award-winning book written by British historian Orlando Figes and published in 1996.

The book chronicles Russian history from the Famine of 1891-1892, the response to which, Figes argues, severely weakened the Russian Empire, until the death of Lenin in 1924, when “the basic elements of the Stalinist regime—the one-party state, the system of terror and the cult of the personality—were all in place”.

According to Figes “…the whole of 1917 could be seen as a political battle between those who saw the revolution as a means of bringing the war to an end and those who saw the war as a means of bringing the revolution to an end.”

GOODREADS

It is history on an epic yet human scale.

Vast in scope, exhaustive in original research, written with passion, narrative skill, and human sympathy, “A People’s Tragedy” is a profound account of the Russian Revolution for a new generation.

Many consider the Russian Revolution to be the most significant event of the 20th century.

Distinguished scholar Orlando Figes presents a panorama of Russian society on the eve of that revolution, and then narrates the story of how these social forces were violently erased.

Within the broad stokes of war and revolution are miniature histories of individuals, in which Figes follows the main players’ fortunes as they saw their hopes die and their world crash into ruins.

Unlike previous accounts that trace the origins of the revolution to overreaching political forces and ideals, Figes argues that the failure of democracy in 1917 was deeply rooted in Russian culture and social history and that what had started as a people’s revolution contained the seeds of its degeneration into violence and dictatorship.

“A People’s Tragedy” is a masterful and original synthesis by a mature scholar, presented in a compelling and accessibly human narrative.

AUDIBLE

Opening with a panorama of Russian society, from the cloistered world of the Tsar to the brutal life of the peasants, “A People’s Tragedy” follows workers, soldiers, intellectuals and villagers as their world is consumed by revolution and then degenerates into violence and dictatorship.

Drawing on vast original research, Figes conveys above all the shocking experience of the revolution for those who lived it, while providing the clearest and most cogent account of how and why it unfolded.

Now including a new introduction that reflects on the revolution’s centennial legacy, “A People’s Tragedy” is a masterful and definitive record of one of the most important events in modern history.
