Against the Grain

100 Year Anniversary of the Russian Revolution

It was an epoch-making event, buoyed by hopes of human emancipation, that still shapes our notion of revolutionary change today.  The Russian Revolution, which took place a hundred years ago, was born out of war and poverty, and profoundly altered the course of the 20th century.  The writer China Miéville recreates those days of revolution, in all of their ebullience, chaos, and tragedy, and reflects on the lessons of October, including whether the degradation of the revolution was inevitable.
