"... an expert work... remarkable for its objectivity, judiciousness, and its sure handling of the available evidence." -Political Science Quarterly

"... a fine piece of historical writing." -Soviet Studies

"An able and scholarly inquiry into the perplexing abortive Petrograd uprising of June and July 1917... a very interesting view of revolutionary action on the local level." -Foreign Affairs

First published in 1968, this pioneering study of revolutionary events in Petrograd in the summer of 1917 revised the established view of the Bolsheviks as a monolithic party. Rabinowitch documents how the party's pluralistic nature had crucial implications for the outcome of the revolution in October.
