The Movements: A Podcast History of the Masses
The Tsar refuses to make concessions to the liberal Duma and the socialists brace themselves for a world war.
Show Notes
The first Russian Revolution has failed. The Tsar dissolves the Duma at will and refuses to make concessions to the liberal parties of the Duma. The socialists are driven underground, imprisoned or exiled in large numbers. As the Social Democratic Parties of Europe grow in power and influence. Mensheviks and Bolsheviks look to their comrades for support and example, particularly the Social Democratic Party of Germany. Meanwhile, the prospect of world war looms in the background, threatening to destroy the world as they knew it.
