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."… (mehr)

Finally finished this one! It was a great read, but I had to knock a star off for sheer length. There was an overwhelming amount of information in here, more even than I expected. I had some questions while reading this about the target audience here, my supposition is Russia experts and scholars. This was certainly not light reading. However, if you are looking for a comprehensive history of the Russian Revolution, this is absolutely the book that I would recommend. I thought that Richard Pipes' coverage of the transformation of old to new Russia was one of the best that I have ever read and very well researched. This book took both a lot of time and a lot of effort to write and it shows in the quality of the finished product. I've already picked up Russia Under the Bolshevik Regime and will keep going with this series on Russian history. ( )

Publicado para gran aclamación y controversia en este país, este libro de escala épica seguramente será explosivo en la Unión Soviética. Argumenta convincentemente que la Revolución Rusa fue más apropiadamente un golpe de estado, estrechamente basado y lleno de terror desde su mismo comienzo. ( )

Methinks he protests too much about how bad the Bolsheviks were. Of course now we know how truly murderous, but comparing them to the Nazis may be going a bit far, with such comments: "Lenin hated what he perceived to be the "bourgeoisie" with a destructive passion that fully equaled Hitler's hatred of the Jews; nothing short of physical annihilation would satisfy him." (pg 728). Also, at some point the chronology becomes unglued with the later chapters reading more like magazine articles than a cohesive chronology, such as "The Murder of the Imperial Family," so you might want to stop reading around Ch. 14. These criticisms aside this is a masterful account. ( )
