The October Revolution

By Roy A. Medvedev
Columbia University Press, 1979
232 pp. $14.95

Roy Medvedev, who continues to publish abroad while living and writing in the U.S.S.R., reinterprets the events and the meaning of the upheaval of 1917-18. The Soviet establishment will condemn the book, but Western historians should find its scholarship praiseworthy and its conclusions food for reasoned discussion.
