Ten Days That Shook The World (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics)

Author: John Reed
The classic firsthand account of how the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917.

With vivid prose, verbatim speeches and actual documents American journalist John Reed captures the drama of the power struggle in Petrograd folowing the Tsar’s abdication in 1917. Traveling throughout the city in those fateful days, he recounts with forceful description the packed meetings, the Provisional government’s downfall, the resistance to the Bolsheviks, and their eventful hold on the country. A bestseller when first published in 1919, TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD still teaches compelling lessons about democracy.

This edition includes a new introduction with historical background, 25 newly selected illustrations, an author biography, key map and index. 6 x 9 format.
