Product description


"A modern masterpiece" (Andrew Marr)

"Combines dramatic power, absorbing narrative and magisterial scholarship – a magnificent tour de force" (Christopher Andrew Sunday Telegraph)

"The most moving account of the Russian Revolution since Doctor Zhivago" (Lucasta Miller Independent)

"This book is not just a history; it is an item of history" (Neal Ascherson Independent on Sunday)

"A People’s Tragedy will do more to help us understand the Russian Revolution than any other book I know" (Eric Hobsbawm London Review of Books)

"Orlando Figes’s chronicle of the final days of Tsarism and the violent Bolshevism that arose from its ruins is an epic in size, scope and insight, and a classic in its genre… A People’s Tragedy succeeds most in capturing the sheer popular immensity of the upheavals in 1917-18, with all of Russia rising up first against the Tsar and then, with the onset of civil war, against itself. With its perfect balance of analysis and anecdote, A People’s Tragedy is surely among the most readable books on the Russian Revolution and the decades of tumult that made it possible – or inevitable" (Brad Davies Independent)
