School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-This is the story of not one but several revolutions, encompassing massacres, pogroms, famines, gulags, wars, and terrorist acts that defy belief. Starting with the days of the serfs and czars, Dunn advances through Russia's history of Marxism, nihilism, populism, and communism. This book is not for the squeamish; the beatings and torture of child laborers are described, as is Stalin's reign. Figures that may have previously been only names to students take on a horrifying reality; Czar Nicholas, Rasputin, Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin are all presented, and insight is offered into their times, psyches, and impact on Russian history. Black-and-white reproductions and photos appear throughout. Adding to the value of this title are a helpful time line, source notes, annotated lists of works consulted and of selections for further reading, and a succinct epilogue that addresses the legacy of revolution, information not covered in earlier books on the topic.-Anita Palladino, Finkelstein Memorial Library, Spring Valley, NY
