俄國革命百週年–重回革命現場

奇幻小說家、左翼政治家柴納.米耶維
帶領眾人回到世界塌陷的那年

1917年2月,俄羅斯處於一個落伍的專制君主制,陷入冗長的戰事之中。
同年10月,歷經兩次革命,俄羅斯一躍成為史上第一個工人國家,變身全球革命先鋒。
為何發生這倏然的劇烈變化?

米耶維跳脫傳統意識形態之爭,他感興趣的是在俄羅斯史上最動盪的一年裡,各種戲劇化的事件。罷工、抗議、暴動、搶劫、陰謀,佔領土地的饑餓農民、工人與哥薩克人的鬥爭,種種紛亂不僅發生在聖彼得堡與莫斯科,也蔓延到這龐大帝國最遙遠的角落。

百年過去,俄國革命已是長期被史學家爭論的事件。但透過October: The Story of the Russian Revolution深入當時社會的體察,藉由非從政治與軍事人物的角度重新觀看這段歷史,加上米耶維妙筆生花的描述,讀者彷彿親身經歷了這兩次挑動世界格局的重要革命。

「即便革命的形式已然遠去,它的影響力仍長存。」–米耶維(文/博客來編譯)

Award-winning author China Miéville plunges us into the year the world was turned upside down

On the centenary of the Russian Revolution, China Miéville tells the extraordinary story of this pivotal moment in history.

In February of 1917 Russia was a backwards, autocratic monarchy, mired in an unpopular war; by October, after not one but two revolutions, it had become the world’s first workers’ state, straining to be at the vanguard of global revolution. How did this unimaginable transformation take place?

In a panoramic sweep, stretching from St Petersburg and Moscow to the remotest villages of a sprawling empire, Miéville uncovers the catastrophes, intrigues and inspirations of 1917, in all their passion, drama and strangeness. Intervening in long-standing historical debates, but told with the reader new to the topic especially in mind, here is a breathtaking story of humanity at its greatest and most desperate; of a turning point for civilisation that still resonates loudly today.
