Reading Material – 5 Days in February from Trotsky’s History of the Russian Revolution
This great work describes the February insurrection that began on International Women’s Day and which led to the overthrow of the Tsar. The material gives tremendous insight into how a demonstration matures into an insurrection, with a vivid description of the tensions and dynamics at play during the decisive moments.
Attached is the chapter from which we will read segments which will also be provided at the class. We read and discuss the material together.
