HIST 247 - History of the USSR

The course begins with the developments leading to the 1917 Russian Revolution-which has been called the greatest event of the twentieth century. It then traces the tumultuous development of Soviet and Russian history up to the present. Emphases include: the social origins of the Russian Revolution; how a great revolution made in the name of social democracy gave rise to one-party rule; and how this set in motion a chain of events which placed the Soviet Union on a new path of historical development leading eventually to its own demise in 1991 and the ensuing recasting of politics and society. Offering to be determined. CLA-Breadth/Humanities
