    If you thought the Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones was brutal Orlando Figes wants to educate you You don’t pick up a book like A People’s Tragedy with the notion that it’s going to be filled with newborn puppies ice cream giveaways and people finding rolled up and forgotten twenty dollar bills in their pockets If you do have that notion – well you should real

    Orlando Figes' masterful A People's Tragedy The Russian Revolution 1891 1924 provides a rich and complex portrait that of Russian society at the time of the fall of the Romanov dynasty and the birth of the Communist state One does not read it for Figes' opinions but rather for the amount of detail that he is able to marshall and synthesize on the key social cultural and political tre

    This is a remarkable book on the Russian Revolution It’s coverage from 1891 thru 1924 is detailed but very readable We are presented with a wide panoply of characters; Tsar Nicholas II Lenin Prince Lvov Kerensky Gorky and many This gives a distinctive personal feeling where history is populated by real people and provides us with a ground view of the turbulent events of Russia It’
