Description

The second edition of The Russian Revolutionary Intelligentsia remains the best brief discussion of the key figures and movements among Russia's intelligentsia during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It includes discussions of the Decembrists, nihilists, populists, and Marxists.

This classic in intellectual history provides equal attention to theory and practice and contains an entirely new chapter covering the troubled last years of Nicholas II's reign, the leadership and personality of Lenin and Trotsky, the February Revolution, and the subsequent Bolshevik triumph in the October Revolution. It also includes more information on women's roles in the movement and women's education in nineteenth century Russia. Also considered are the roles of the movement's non-Russian participants. Particularly important, in this revised edition Professor Pomper reexamines the intelligentsia movement in light of the collapse of the Soviet Union.
