In 1917, the Russian empire was shaken by two revolutions. In March, the monarchy was overthrown and the interim government took over, seeking to build a democratic country. Eight months later, those dreams vanished into thin air: governance ended up in the hands of Lenin and his party. A new era in Russian history began.

How did the 1917 revolutions affect the history of the 20th century? How did they influence the history of Poland and other countries in Central Europe? How did the Bolshevik terror differ from that of their opponents? How are the 1917 events viewed in today’s Russia? These questions are addressed in this book by a group of renowned historians from multiple European countries.
