The Eastward Movement, 1917–53

Part of the Studies in Russian and East European History book series (SREEHS)


The February revolution of 1917 swept away the incompetent, indecisive Tsarist government and brought to the fore men with some belief in the advisability of social change. Stolypin was dead but his agrarian policy had lingered on during wartime. The years of peace, necessary for the implementation of his reforms, had been denied him. The forces which had fought him now gained the ascendancy and set about the task of solving Russia’s perennial agrarian problems in quite a different manner.
