Full text:
The collective monograph makes a new attempt to rethink the Russian revolution as a ‘historical divide’ between eras in Russian and world history. The authors come to the conclusion
that the revolutionary transformation of Russia went far beyond the borders of 1917, capturing not only the Russian Civil War, but also the first decade of Soviet power. The most important and valuable observations relate to the hidden and still underestimated socio-cultural influence of prerevolutionary Russia on the seemingly completely special ‘Soviet world’.
