Orlando Figes gives a new perspective on revolutionary Russia, presenting the Revolution in a century-long cycle. Beginning with the 1891 famine and the crisis it provoked, Figes argues for three phases of revolution: the 'Old Bolsheviks', through 1917 and up to the 1920s; Stalin's 'revolution from above', Five Year Plans and collectivization, the latter 'a catastrophe from which the country never recovered'; and finally the years from Khrushchev to 1991, in which the leadership turned its back on Stalin, but not on Leninism.
