Russia 1917: The Unpublished Revolution

By Jonathan Sanders
Abbeville Press, 1990
260 pp. $39.95

Gradually the spirit of glasnost has penetrated the musty, sealed archives of Bolshevism to reveal this elegant collection of contemporary photographs, most never seen in the West, from the revolutionary year of 1917. Particularly haunting are the faces of people-both well known and nameless-trying to go about daily life as history crashes down upon them. Sanders places the remarkable images in context with an extended introductory essay. A coffee-table book with substance and impact.
