In this day, the antisemitic topos of "Judeo-Bolshevism" haunts political arguments. Paradoxically, after the October Revolution, mostly Jewish voices expressed shock of the rise of Jews in the Soviet apparatus.

The First Russian Revolution demonstrated that there was considerable interest in democracy in the Transbaikal, Amur, and Maritime Regions in 1905–1907, which was widely shared across the empire and in East Asia. Democracy was understood as economic welfare, social justice, civil liberties, popular representation, decentralization, and national self-determination. Like elsewhere in the empire, protests started ...

This article analyzes Nikolai Berdyaev’s (1874–1948) ideas concerning the spiritual origins of the 1917 Russian revolution.

The main reason these demons were ...

The utopian Communist ideal of a workers’ state, which was put into action after the Bolshevik takeover of power in Russia in 1917, provoked new types of social mobilization, adaptation, and domination and new political institutions. At the core of this experiment was the new concept of Labor Unions as a form of intermediate democracy which could potentially be ...

В глазах многих современников и историков российской Гражданской войны Белое движение было делом прежних имперских элит, не понявших и не принявших революцию. Белые желали вернуть прежнюю Россию. Это подчеркивал и возвышенный цветаевский образ «белогвардейской рати святой», и совсем не поэтичная белая «контрреволюция», о которой писали советские историки. Но к чему в действительности стремились белые правительства? ...
