Horizonterweiterung: Zur Historiography der Russischen Revolution

Osteuropa. 2017. Vol. 67. No. 6-8. P. 295-304.

This article discusses recent trends in the historiography of the Russian revolution. Focusing on scholarly works on the revolution published within past 5-7 years, it analyzes the attempts to integrate the revolution in the history of the European crisis triggered by the First World War.  At the same time, it is argued that besides its analysis within the European and global contexts, the Russian revolution is studied extensively within the framework of provincial studies. The article discusses the reasons and aspects of this globalization and simultaneous regionalization of the recent historiography of the Russian revolution.
