This is a book on the Russian Revolution with a difference. It unites the formal history and the individual memoir by telling the story of 1917 in the words of eyewitnesses who say history in the making. They witnessed two revolutions-the overthrow of Tsarism in March and the Bolshevik seizure of power in November-and described them with an immediacy that later accounts never achieve. These witnesses are British and American rather than Russian: as outsiders, they could see more of the game.

Produktbeschreibung
This is a book on the Russian Revolution with a difference. It unites the formal history and the individual memoir by telling the story of 1917 in the words of eyewitnesses who say history in the making. They witnessed two revolutions-the overthrow of Tsarism in March and the Bolshevik seizure of power in November-and described them with an immediacy that later accounts never achieve. These witnesses are British and American rather than Russian: as outsiders, they could see more of the game. They include diplomats, newspaper correspondents, the military, businessmen, even the occasional English governess. There are also adventurous young American radicals like John Reed, author of TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD, and newspaper correspondents such as Arthur Ransome, who married Trotsky's secretary and later wrote such childrens classic as SWALLOWS AND AMAZONS. Their brilliant journalism has been unread since 1917, while many other eyewitness accounts are published here for the first time. Harvey Pitcher skilfully weaves their accounts into a vivid and absorbing narrative, treating the witnesses' often conflicting views of the Revolution with impartiality

Autorenporträt
Harvey Pitcher studied at Oxford and Leningrad, and in 1963 started the Russian Department at St Andrews University. Since 1971 he has been a full-time writer. His first book to achieve widespread popularity, When Miss Emmie was in Russia (1977), was described by Paul Scott as 'a study of the whole adventure' of being an English governess before and during the Russian Revolution. This was followed by other books on the British and American communities in pre-Soviet Russia: The Smiths of Moscow (1984) and Muir & Mirrielees, about Russia's first department store (1994). Harvey Pitcher is also a leading Chekhov scholar. He is the author of a standard work, The Chekhov Play: A New Interpretation (1973) and of Chekhov's Leading Lady (1979), a portrait of Chekhov's actress wife, Olga Knipper. With fellow translator Patrick Miles he introduced English readers to the delights of Chekhov's early comic stories. Harvey Pitcher lives in Cromer on the north Norfolk coast.
