Russia from Revolution to Counter-Revolutionary Dictatorship — and What It Means for Us Today

In this talk, presented on Nov. 7, 2017 for Solidarity Winnipeg, David Camfield offers an introduction for people unfamiliar with the history of what happened a century ago. It traces the path from a profoundly democratic overturning of the old order in 1917 to civil war and the rule of a revolutionary leadership layer to the rise of a new dominant class, ending with some thoughts about what this history means for anti-capitalists today.

David Camfield is the author of We Can Do Better: Ideas for Changing Society and a member of Solidarity Winnipeg.
