5. November 1991 Vintage
Mr. Pipes writes trenchantly, and at times superbly....No single volume known to me even begins to cater so adequately to those who want to discover what really happened to Russia....Nor do I know any other book better designed to help Soviet citizens to struggle out of the darkness."

-- Ronald Hingley, The New York Times Book Review

Ground-breaking in its inclusiveness, enthralling in its narrative of a movement whose purpose, in the words of Leon Trotsky, was "to overthrow the world," The Russian Revolution draws conclusions that have already aroused great controversy in this country-and that are certain to be explosive when the book is published in the Soviet Union. Richard Pipes argues convincingly that the Russian Revolution was an intellectual, rather than a class, uprising; that it was steeped in terror from its very outset; and that it was not a revolution at all but a coup d'etat -- "the capture of governmental power by a small minority."

"A monumental study...of absorbing interest [by] the distinguished historian of modern Russia ...Lucidly written, unsurpassed in detail and comprehensiveness."

-- Wall Street Journal

"Mr. Pipes provides invaluable background to today's headlines....Few efforts have been made to create such a comprehensive work.... Pipes is a pathfinder."

-- The New York Times


Presents a comprehensive view of the Russian Revolution embracing not only the political and military struggle for power, but the entire movement, from 1899 to 1919, to revolutionize state and society. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Von Ein Kunde
This book could (and should) have been written 30 years ago. It isn't simply that it's anti-socialist - blaming the whole Left (and many liberals too) for the coillapse of the Revolution into dictatorship. It is also that it totally ignores the past generation of scholarship - social histories of late Imperial Russia and the Revolution which have produced a much more complicated picture than the one presented here. For Pipes the Bolsheviks are simply "evil" - the rank-and-file are blind agents of Lenin's will, and he's to blame for all. Yet the point is to find out why soldiers, workers and the peasantry should join the Bolsheviks, or fail to resist them and defend democracy, given their own revolutionary traditions. This Pipes fails to do. Yet there is an alternative - A People's Tragedy: The Russian Revolution, 1891-1924, by the British historian, Orlando Figes, which I am reading now. It takes a much more balanced view - and is much more readable than Pipe's stodgy prose. Now wonder it has won so many literary prizes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb, definitive and poignant in its wisdom 31. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
As for Russian history, this book is the bible regarding the revolutionary period. For French Revolution fans, here is Russia's version of "citizen" action contructed by diabolical architects who kept France's success always in front of them. As for political science, this book is wise in its interpretation of political action and didactic in its interpretation about this failed expirament in alleged utopianism. Once read one is convinced of Russia's failure in governing and appalled at its deliberate evil perpitrated by a few upon millions who sought and needed true freedom. Prof. Pipes brings home accountability for the actions of afew dangerous men. This book is a brilliant, an enlightening historical study about Russia, history in general and man as a creature who is always seeking power and social control. Pipes clearly reveals that history does repeats itself. And, like Winston Churchill, reveals how good people can understand evil actions if they understand history. Superb, superb, superb.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good Antidote to Soviet Apologia 22. April 1999
It's amazing how many histories of the USSR or the Russian Revolution will gloss over the waves of terror they initiated, or imply that this terror was "necessary," or speak of it in the same phlegmatic way that one would describe routine events. This makes a stark contrast to the way that moral indignation is NOT withheld from histories of Nazi Germany. Professor Pipes should be commended for expressing moral indignation about inexcusable and unnecessary tyranny and bloodshed, just as William L. Shirer deserves commendation for telling the story of Nazi Germany the way it really happened. (Did this mean that Shirer was "biased"? If he had downplayed the Nazi terror and devoted hundreds of pages to Nazi "accomplishments" such as full employment, would this have been an accurate and meaningful account of the Third Reich?) Indeed, the fact that Pipes' book attracts criticism from intellectuals for having revealed the true face of Lenin's Bolsheviks and the Soviet government they installed--in all its ruthlessness, depravity, and mendacity--is strong proof that his book's focus on the role of depraved intellectuals and depraved theories in the establishment of the USSR is right on the money. As Pipes pointed out, one of its founding ideas can be traced back to Rousseau--the idea that man is a mere creature of his "environment," and therefore completely malleable. This amounts to an engraved invitation to bloodthirsty monsters like Lenin and Stalin to start thinking that mankind should be forced to become "good," regardless of the human cost.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Book! I learned so very much. 25. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Of all the accounts of the Russian revolution I've read, this one is the best, most entertaining and most frightening. It is very well researched and bring the mentality of the participants into a new light. Some of the events seem almost comical but when you realize that the result was a brutal totalitarian regime, you get pretty frightened. How easy it seemed to get people not to care about who is in charge and subjugate them to your will.
I guess I only have one complaint and that is the portion on the death of the czar. Pipes goes into way too much detail in this portion and in my opinion it had very little impact on the Russian revolution. Considering the millions who were killed by the Soviets, the murder of one family, doesn't amount to much.
