Abstract

Nel corso del XX secolo l’Italia è stato uno dei paesi dell’Occidente in cui il confronto politico e la dialettica fra le classi sociali ha assunto la più marcata connotazione ideologica. Questo alto livello di ideologizzazione ha fatto sì che nelle culture politiche italiane si stratificassero molteplici concezioni e rappresentazioni della rivoluzione, all’interno delle quali occupano un ruolo centrale quelle della Rivoluzione russa e, in particolare, di quella bolscevica dell’ottobre 1917. Questo volume raccoglie una serie di ricerche sulle rappresentazioni della Rivoluzione russa nella politica italiana del Novecento. Le rappresentazioni del 1917, e quelle della forma di Stato e di governo nata dalla Rivoluzione rappresentano un punto di osservazione sull’evoluzione delle culture politiche, delle loro relazioni e contrapposizioni, della circolazione di idee e delle influenze reciproche. Dalla metà degli anni Venti fino al crollo dell’Unione Sovietica nel 1991, gli eventi russi del 1917 e il “modello sovietico” diventano un termine di confronto, un esempio a cui ispirarsi o, comunque, un elemento imprescindibile per tutte quelle correnti politiche e culturali che cercano di elaborare una lettura (positiva o negativa, ideologica o più orientata all’analisi reale) della società di massa, del capitalismo fordista, del rapporto fra Stato e classi sociali e di quello fra interessi economici individuali e collettivi.

Abstract

Over two decades have passed since the collapse of the USSR, yet the words "Soviet Union" still carry significant weight in the collective memory of millions. But how often do we consider the true meaning of the term "Soviet"? Drawing extensively on left-wing press archives, Romancing the Revolution traces the reactions of the British Left to the idealized concept of Soviet democracy. Focusing on the turbulent period after the 1917 Russian Revolution, author Ian Bullock examines the impact of the myth of Soviet democracy: the belief that Russia was embarking on a brave experiment in a form of popular government more genuine and advanced than even the best forms of parliamentarism. Romancing the Revolution uncovers the imprint of this myth on left-wing organizations and their publications, ranging from those that presented themselves as "British Bolsheviks"—the British Socialist party and The Call, the Socialist Labour party's The Socialist, Sylvia Pankhurst's Workers' Dreadnought—to the much more equivocal Labour Leader and The New Statesmen.

Abstract

During the Russian Revolution and Civil War, amateur theater groups sprang up in cities across the country. Workers, peasants, students, soldiers, and sailors provided entertainment ranging from improvisations to gymnastics and from propaganda sketches to the plays of Chekhov. In Revolutionary Acts, Lynn Mally reconstructs the history of the amateur stage in Soviet Russia from 1917 to the height of the Stalinist purges. Her book illustrates in fascinating detail how Soviet culture was transformed during the new regime's first two decades in power.

Of all the arts, theater had a special appeal for mass audiences in Russia, and with the coming of the revolution it took on an important role in the dissemination of the new socialist culture. Mally's analysis of amateur theater as a space where performers, their audiences, and the political authorities came into contact enables her to explore whether this culture emerged spontaneously ""from below"" or was imposed by the revolutionary elite. She shows that by the late 1920s, Soviet leaders had come to distrust the initiatives of the lower classes, and the amateur theaters fell increasingly under the guidance of artistic professionals. Within a few years, state agencies intervened to homogenize repertoire and performance style, and with the institutionalization of Socialist Realist principles, only those works in a unified Soviet canon were presented.

Abstract

The Russian Revolution was an explosion of mass democracy from below. It transformed the people who took part and inspired tens of millions across the world. Its global impact shook the capitalist system to its foundations and came close to bringing it down. But in the end, the revolutionary movement was destroyed by the most murderous counter-revolutionary terror in history. And because the real history of the revolution is so subversive of class rule everywhere – East, West, and South – it has been buried under a mountain of lies, distortions, and denials. This book sets out to nail every bogus argument about the Russian Revolution – from Tories, Stalinists, and sectarians – and to present the living reality of a mass movement of millions, organised in participatory assemblies, mobilised for militant action.
