We look at the 1905 revolution and ask whether it deserves such a title, before turning to the two revolutions in 1917. We consider why Tsarism collapsed, why liberalism failed and Bolshevism succeeded, why revolution gave way to civil war, and assess the consequences of the revolutions for Russia and the world.
