History, Russian Revolution

How can peasants and workers in the colonial world throw off imperialist exploitation? How can they overcome national and religious divisions incited by their own ruling classes and fight for their common class interests?

As the example of the October Revolution echoed around the world, these questions were addressed by 2,000 delegates to the 1920 Congress of the Peoples of the East.

This book is part of a series, The Communist International in Lenin’s Time.

“To See the Dawn is interesting because it includes a number of documents ‘hidden for decades in closed Soviet archives.’ ”
