Special Event: Why Study the Russian Revolution?
What was the Russian Revolution? How did it become the dominant event of the 20th century, forever altering history by giving rise to the most powerful and progressive social movements of the last century?
David North, chairman of the International Editorial Board of the World Socialist Web Site, will review the causes, consequences and enduring significance of the 1917 Russian Revolution.
WSWS Chairman David North has been a leading figure in the international socialist movement for more than four decades. He is national chairman of the Socialist Equality Party (US) and author of numerous works, including In Defense of Leon Trotsky, The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished 20th Century, and A Quarter Century of War: The US Drive for Global Hegemony, 1991-2016.
