Summary
"The Bolshevik party's first year in power following the revolution of November 1917 profoundly, perhaps even decisively, shaped the Soviet political system that endured through most of the twentieth century. That fateful year is the focus of Alexander Rabinowitch's riveting book." "Drawn largely from information in previously inaccessible Soviet archives, including untapped documents from the former KGB archive, The Bolsheviks in Power demolishes the long-standing view that the party's extreme ideology and dictatorial behavior immediately transformed the Soviet political system into one of the most authoritarian and oppressive regimes in history. Rather, with careful documentation, Rabinowitch shows that this system evolved ad hoc as the Bolsheviks struggled to retain political power amid spiraling political, social, economic, and military crises."--BOOK JACKET
