This year there will be an outpouring of writings on the Russian Revolution - many of which will, unfortunately, downplay the role of 'ordinary' peasants and workers.
Here's a place to list readings that tell the real history of the revolution. What would libcommers recommend?
To start us off, here's some writings on the February Revolution - which began on 8 March, International Women's Day, 1917:
Choi Chatterjee, Celebrating Women; Gender, Festival, Culture and Bolshevik Ideology, p43-54.
Temma Kaplan, 'Women and Communal Strikes in the Crisis of 1917-1922'.
Jane McDermid and Anna Hillyar, Midwives of the Revolution, especially p147-157.
