The overthrow of social democracy
Immediately after the overthrow of the Czar in 1917 the Kerensky government was formed, the short-lived and only democratic national government Russia has ever known. Dr. Sworakowski provides a detailed and carefully analyzed description of the reasons why Kerensky’s government fell so quickly. He also reads a letter from an eye-witness of the overthrow. Again, dramatic episodes alternate with commentary and narration over photographs and documents, as a picture of Lenin’s strategy and attack in the November Revolution is built up.
