The 1917 Russian Revolution was the most significant event of the 20th century. The taking of power by the Russian working class under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky transformed the course of human history and reverberates to this day.
The essays in these two volumes put the events of 1917 in a contemporary perspective under conditions of a world wracked by immense social and political contradictions.

One hundred years after the outbreak of World War I and the Russian Revolution, none of the problems of the twentieth century—devastating wars, economic crises, social inequality, and the threat of dictatorship—have been solved. Disputing postmodernism’s view that all history is merely subjective “narrative,” David North insists that a thorough materialist knowledge of history is vital for humanity’s survival in the twenty-first century.
“If historians still look back in anger on the last century, it is because mankind is still fighting—in the spheres of politics, economics, philosophy, and even art—its undecided battles.”
David North, Foreword to The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century
