The Empire Must Die: Russia’s Revolutionary Collapse, 1900—1917
Михаил Зыгарь. Империя должна умереть
In 1912 Russia experienced a flowering of liberalism and tolerance that placed it at the forefront of the Modern world: women were fighting for the right to vote in the elections for the newly empowered parliament, Russian art and culture was the envy of Europe and America, there was a vibrant free press and intellectual life. But a fatal flaw was left uncorrected: Russia's exuberant experimental moment took place atop a rotten foundation. The old imperial order, in place for three hundred years, still held the nation in thrall. Its princes, archdukes and generals bled the country dry during the First World War and by 1917 the only consensus was that the Empire must die.
