This volume, originally published in 1918, discusses the events which gave rise to the Russian Revolution and finally resulted in Russia’s political, economic and military collapse. In order to fully understand the events, the author places them against their social and political background, discussing the historical influences which affected social conditions and the state of affairs which existed in Court, military and Government circles, as well as in the different classes of the population before and during the war.
