A Look Inside
Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1995-11:
Frame (Slavonic Studies, Cambridge Univ.) has compiled this fine-tuned reference tool. The preface explains the dates covered, the categories selected, and which works are excluded (mere mention of the revolution does not merit inclusion). Chapters or categories range from (A) "Reference, Documents and General," to (X) "Place and Significance of the Revolution in Russian and World History." These broad subject areas (of which there are 24) are divided into subcategories, often both by subject and chronology. "Society" (D) is divided by groups (workers, peasants, etc.) and under each group by date (1905-07, 1907-14, etc.). Each citation within a lettered chapter is assigned a number preceded by the letter. This is extremely helpful when searching for entries in author and subject indexes. The compiler limits entries in the literature section, since he found enough references for another book. Otherwise, the bibliography aims at inclusiveness for works in English, including monographs, articles, and doctoral theses. Entries are not annotated, but this is compensated for by the detailed classification. This is a gem for researchers and students at all levels. R. P. Sasscer; Catholic University of America
Review Quotes
'œFrame has compiled this fine-tuned reference tool. This is a gem for researchers and students at all levels.'' Choice
'œIt is hard to think of a relevant author or work that has not been included in this compilation... This is a work that most libraries with serious coverage of Russian or even simply general world history will want to acquire, for it places in the researcher's hands an ample survey of the work done to date on a key historical event.'' College & Research Libraries

Long Description
This book provides the first fully comprehensive bibliography of English-language literature on what was, arguably, the most important historical event of the 20th century. It brings together for the first time the multitude of monographs, articles, and dissertations on various aspects of the Russian Revolution that have been published from 1905 to mid-1994. While the bibliography conceives the Revolution as the period of transition from tsarist Russia to Soviet Russia, a process that occured between 1905 and 1921, it seeks not only to list works central to that process, but to list all works relevant to that period of Russian history. The bibliography contains 24 thematic sections covering all subjects from politics and society, to education and the arts. Thus there are categories devoted not only to the tsarist establishment and the Red Army, but to science and technology during the revolutionary years. Most of the thematic sections have subsections which seek to divide the history of the Russian Revolution into its component parts in a manner that will be familiar to specialists and accessible to students. There are indexes of authors and subjects, as well as a detailed list of contents, all designed to facilitate quick and easy use of the bibliography.
