Description
This Lecture: This is a close look at why the new government failed, from the fall of the monarchy in February to the coming to power of the Bolsheviks in October of 1917. In particular, the lecture explores four central ideas of the time: the love of freedom; the need for a strong and progressive state; distrust of the rich and powerful, and the centrality of moral feeling and ethical judgment. The Course: It's difficult to imagine a nation with a history more compelling for Americans than Russia. This was the nation against which we measured our own nation's values and power and with whom war, if it ever came, could spell unimaginable catastrophe for our planet. Professor Steinberg draws on his own years of experience as a student in the Soviet Union and a world-class historian. All Lectures: 1. Understanding the Russian Past 2. The Russia of Peter the Great's Childhood 3. Peter the Great's Revolution 4. The Age of Empresses - Catherine the Great 5. Social Rebellion - The Purgachev Uprising 6.
