Edited by Tania Rose with a foreword by Eric Hobsbawm. A special correspondent for the Manchester Guardian, Morgani Philips Price was one of the few Englishmen in Russia during all phases of the Revolution. Although his Bolshevik sympathies accorded him an insider’s perspective on much of the turmoil, his reports were often heavily revised or suppressed. This collection includes Price’s pre-censored observations as comment, as well as letters, postcards, and other writings. Dispatches from the Revolution offers an account of the Russian Revolution from an eyewitness whose political commitment, fluency in Russian, and extensive travel far beyond the cities permitted him to write, uniquely, not only of metropolitan news and politics, but also of the experiences and issues significant to ordinary peasants, workers, and solidiers in remote areas of the Russian empire.
