The Russian Revolution

Who were the Intelligentsia? What were the causes and effects of the 1917 revolution? What were the goals of the Bolsheviks?

Videos with Ethan Pollock of Brown University address the effects of World War I on Russia, the roles of Lenin, the Bolsheviks, and the Intelligentsia, as well as the geography of the Russian empire and the causes, effects, and legacies of the Russian Revolution. The series makes a great addition to our newly updated curriculum unit, The Russian Revolution.
