The Russian Revolution, despite its shortcomings, remains arguably the single most important event of the past century, casting its legacy on every revolutionary social experiment on the planet, creating an alternative socio-economic model to capitalism, providing an umbrella for national liberation movements, setting a pattern for democratic centralism, and shaping the balance of forces to the present day.

Sharat G. Lin will present and lead audience discussion. He is the author of "On the Ninetieth Anniversary of the Russian Revolution: Why Socialism Did Not Fail", Monthly Review, 9 October 2007
