Lockwood (history, Flinders U., South Australia) believes that business phenomena just before the triumph of the revolution can cast light on similar phenomena just after its fall of the Soviet Union. Drawing on the same published sources that historians have used for nearly a century, he offers a new view of events. He discusses the nature of the bourgeois revolution and that of the state, the crises of the Russo-Japanese War and the 1905 revolution and their effect on the bourgeois, the effects of the Great War, the final demise of the bourgeoisie when confronted with Soviet power, and the place of the Russian events in European history.
