As the detail of familiar objects under a microscope recasts preexisting impressions, Rabinowitch's week-by-week and, in places, day-by-day reconstruction of Bolshevik politics from the first to the second October under Soviet rule gives altogether familiar events an unfamiliar and far deeper resonance. The Bolsheviks were divided even in power, and over principle, not merely tactics; Lenin and his iron-fisted ally, Trotsky, emerge as not only single-minded, uncompromising, and ruthless but also genuinely in tune with the revolution-stoked workers, soldiers, and sailors of Petrograd and Moscow.
