    This is the second best book I ve read that gives an overview of the Russian Revolution I ve read way too many books on this, so that is high praise Sheila Fitzpatrick gets the one spot, but Wade dominates without question Ending the book with the dispersal of the Constituent Assembly is righteous That is the beginning of the end of democracy in Russia Wade s take on Lenin offers a bit of a contrast to people like Lars Lih He chooses to emphasize the power hungry, violent, centralizing Lenin but never falls into the traps Lih has so successfully criticized in his take on the flaws of the textbook version of Lenin Wade s Lenin was not an autocrat from birth, but neither was he a pragmatic, yet still anti war socialist in the mold of Tsereteli who Wade rescues from obscurity There s a lot to love about this book I ll just add that the nationalities chapter is one of a kind in the attention it gives to people who are normally wholly written out of a Petrograd centered historiography.
