Revolution in Russia, 1917-20 Main argument: The trauma of World War One led to the rise of highly ideological (or ‘totalitarian’) political regimes. In Russia, the strains of total war led to the outbreak of one liberal Revolution, which was then followed by the Bolshevik revolution. The question is : did the Bolsheviks enjoy popular support? They certainly received the support of some, though not the majority, of working people. However, in creating the world’s first property-less society, the Bolsheviks sometimes brutally suppressed the very group whose interests they claimed to represent: the industrial working class.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
