The Great Revolution of 1917. An Illustrated Chronicle.
For the 100th Anniversary of the Great Revolution of 1917.
This illustrated chronicle of the first "great geopolitical catastrophe" of the 20th century tells everything about the most tragic and critical year in our history. Since the Great Revolution is not reduced to the political coups of the February and October of 1917 only, it is the entire year with every month filled with the fateful events: from the icy January, when the country was caught in a revolutionary fever, till the fierce December, when the first gunfire of the Civil War broke out.
This edition provides a unique opportunity not only to read about the critical moments in our history but also to see them firsthand both on the photos (most of them published for the first time; the tragedy of 1917 was the first revolution that was caught by the photo- and video cameras) and on the postcards and caricatures of that age. After all, the revolutionary experience of a hundred years ago is more than topical nowadays, when the world got caught in "a zone of turbulence" again, and we are about to face more "incredible changes, unheard rebellions", if put it with Alexander Blok's expression...
