Twenty-seventeen is the centenary of events that, in the words of John Reed, ‘Shook the World’. Since then, much has been written about the October Revolution and from many perspectives, but none of it has the authenticity of first-hand experience. This course will conduct a critical examination of the accounts published by John Reed and other observers – including testimonies to the Bolshevik Propaganda hearings of the United States Senate in 1919 – to build an understanding of the historical circumstances that helped shape the decisions that were taken at that time.
