Harrison Salisbury. Black Night, White Snow: Russia's Revolutions 1905-1917. NY: Doubleday, 1978. 769 pages. Hardcover with deckle-edges. BOMC edition. A fast-paced narrative captures the rich drama of the most crucial political/historical event of the twentieth century. He exposes the strata of Russian society, with its prophetic poets, religious fanatics, and newly liberated serfs. Hard data on Russia's economy, a first-hand knowledge of the county, and a historian's gift of compression are combined to read with the ease of a good novel and the urgency of a newspaper headline.
