COUNTRY OF THE MONTH
The February Revolution was 100 years ago this month (according to the Julian calendar) and the world is commemorating it in myriad ways, especially given the unexpected revolutionary turn which politics has taken a century later. It was a catalyst for change and an event of epic proportions to which we are still coming to terms.
We have selected books for you from across the spectrum – works of classic Russian literature, books written at the time, books encompassing a broad sweep of history, books about Lenin and about the Tsars. We welcome any suggestions from our customers about other titles for the list which will rotate throughout the month, and we’ll be revisiting the theme in November.
