"The classic study of the role and behavior of Petrograd factory workers during the Great Russian Revolution. Based on thorough study of the relevant sources, Smith presents a nuanced, compelling sense of the ultimately decisive dialectical relationship between the powerful revolution from below and the triumph of Bolshevism in Red Petrograd."
--Alexander Rabinowitch, author, The Bolsheviks Come to Power

"Justly celebrated as a towering, vivid, historically vital work."
--China Mieville



This book explores the impact of the 1917 Revolution on factory life in the Russian capital. It traces the attempts of workers to take control of their working lives from the February Revolution through to June 1918, when the Bolsheviks nationalised industry. The book demonstrates that the sphere of industrial production was a crucial arena of political as well as economic conflict. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
