Format: Taschenbuch
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.

Format: Taschenbuch
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.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Format: Taschenbuch
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.

Format: Taschenbuch
As a history student majoring in Russia I have to say this book is the bible on the topic of the Russian Revolution. Pipes proves with enough arguments all his points through out the book. Since the origins of the Russian Revolution to the last chapter on the 'Red Terror' Pipes shows how Lenin destroyed all prospects of the revolution the moment he entered the sphere of politics in Russia. As Pipes argues, the origns of the revolution started with intellectuals protesting for the delay in the implementation of the reforms of Tsar Alexander II. Most of what the ideals of the Russian Revolution were based, was on intellectuals representing the peasants and workers claiming to have political representation in the political decisions of the country, beginning with the 'zemtsvo' and conluding in the revolutions of 1905 and of February 1917. As Pipes argues, when the Bolsheviks conquered power, they destroyed all the ideals of the revolution since they triumphed by a coup d'etat and not by a genuine revolution as it took place in 1905 and in February of 1917. The ideals of previous revolutionaries, to live in a country where all sectors of society would have a political voice in the government where all destroyed by the Bolsheviks (who besides betraying and penetrating the 'soviets') they also established an absolute tyranny where only the Bolsheviks could decide the future of the nation, thus prohibiting other parties and establishing a brutal dictatorship based on terror. This of course did not have anything to do with the ideals of previous revolutionaries who fought for a revolution where the ideal of freedom prevailed and not the imposition of one party which won its way to power by a coup organized by Lenin and Trotsky. The book is of course 'communists' worst nightmare'
