Vladimir Lenin’s Bolsheviks came to power in 1917 promising to establish a democratic, equal society out of the ruins of Tsarism. Josef Stalin died in 1953 with Russia far away from the ideals of 1917. This course examines the development of Russian society and politics and explores how the dream of socialism became a nightmare of dictatorship. Not to be taken with La5 in History.
