This book is the first English–language edition of Weber′s writings on the revolutions in Russia in 1905 and February 1917. Weber discusses the events and examines the issue of Russian ′liberalization′ and its prospects in a way that, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, has great relevance today.

Review:

"The editors have provided extensive notes and glossaries, both of which are necessary and useful in approaching Weber′s detailed work. This book is a timely and telling addition to a number of fields of inquiry ... it gives us a clear example of Weber′s political sociology applied to a practical and pressing situation." History of the Human Sciences

"This volume will be of interest to two kinds of people: those who are interested in the sociology of Max Weber and those whose field is Russian history. For the historian of Russia, Weber′s ′chronicles′ of the 1905 revolution are extremely instructive. This is not only because they give a contemporary perspective on events, but because Weber was concerned to analyse the social dynamic behind the current crisis in Russia ... the insight they provide into the peculiarities of Russian social and political development is of a genuine and enduring value. They could even be read with profit by those wishing to understand Russian society of the present day!" Slavonica

From the Back Cover:

In the spring of 1905 Weber turned the full power of his intellect to the revolutionary events in Russia. Fascinated by the world–historical importance of the revolution, and dismayed by the coverage it received in the German press, Weber set out to write his own ′chronicles′. This book is the first English–language edition of these writings, and it also includes two essays written by Weber in the aftermath of the February revolution of 1917.


Weber examines the various social classes which might function as the bearers of democratization in Russia, and comes to pessimistic conclusions. He explicitly addresses the dynamics of class conflict, as well as the conditions and consequences of revolution.


Weber discusses the events of 1905 and February 1917, accurately predicting that ′only a disastrous European war would lead to the final overthrow of the autocracy.′ He examines the issue of Russian ′liberalization′ and its prospects in a way that, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, has great relevance today.


With its close attention to detail, its acute cameos of the major players in the revolutions and its often prophetic judgment, this book is a tour–de–force of political writing. It will add a significant chapter to our understanding of Weber′s life and work.


The Russian Revolutions will be welcomed by students and researchers in politics, sociology, modern history and Russian studies.
