What is the meaning of revolution in the twenty-first century?
One hundred years ago, the events of October 1917 inspired socialists and oppressed peoples around the world, and it became an inevitable point of reference for twentieth-century politics. Today the Left needs to both come to terms with this legacy and to transcend it through a critical reappraisal of its broad effects — those positive and negative — on political, intellectual and cultural life.
“Re-examine revolution, but surely now is not the time to abandon it.”
— Chris Nineham for Counterfire (full review)
