About this session

In 1917, the Russian Bolshevik Party led millions of workers and peasants in overthrowing the capitalist state and establishing soviet power. This session will explore how a party which had the politics, experience and organisation necessary to argue to and win the leadership of a revolutionary working-class movement was built.
