520    "In The Russian Revolution, historian Sean McMeekin traces
       the origins and events of the Russian Revolution, which 
       ended Romanov rule, ushered the Bolsheviks into power, and
       changed the course of world history. Between 1900 and 1920,
       Russia underwent a complete and irreversible 
       transformation: by the end of these two decades, a new 
       regime was in place, the economy had collapsed, and over 
       20 million Russians had died during the revolution and 
       what followed. Still, Bolshevik power remained intact due 
       to a remarkable combination of military prowess, violent 
       terror tactics, and the failures of their opposition. And 
       as McMeekin shows, Russia's revolutionaries were aided at 
       nearly every step by countries like Germany and Sweden who
       sought to benefit-politically and economically-from the 
       chaotic changes overtaking the country.  The first 
       comprehensive history of these momentous events in a 
       decade, The Russian Revolution combines cutting-edge 
       scholarship and a fast-paced narrative to shed new light 
       on a great turning point of the twentieth century"--

520    "In The Russian Revolution, historian Sean McMeekin traces
       the origins and events of the Russian Revolution, which 
       brought an end to Romanov rule and ushered the Bolsheviks 
       into power. Between the dawn of the 20th century and 1920,
       Russia underwent a complete and irreversible 
       transformation, the effects of which would reverberate 
       throughout the world for decades to come. At the turn of 
       the century, the Russian economy, which still trailed 
       behind Britain, France, Germany, and the U.S., was growing
       by about 10% annually, and its population had reached 150 
       million. But by 1920, a new regime was in place, the 
       country was in desperate financial straits, and between 20
       and 25 million Russians had died during the Revolution and
       the Civil War, the Red Terror, and the economic collapse 
       that followed. Still, Bolshevik power remained intact 
       through a remarkable combination of military prowess, 
       violent terror tactics, and the bumbling failures of their
       opposition. And as McMeekin shows, they were aided at 
       nearly every step by countries like Germany, Sweden, and 
       Switzerland who sought to benefit--politically and 
       economically--from the chaotic changes overtaking the 
       country"--|cProvided by publisher
