Abstract
  • When the Bolsheviks came to power in Russia in 1917, party leaders under-stood well that a thorough social transformation lay between them and the full realization of long-term revolutionary objectives. The seizure of political authority and even a proposed redistribution of economic goods and services would not themselves create citizens of a new type, nor would they spontane-ously recast the quality of Russian life. Yet party behavior on the road to revo-lution had done little to communicate any precise plan for reshaping society. On the contrary, Bolshevik political militancy, tactical brashness, glib slogan-eering, and the lack of a well-defined, comprehensive program all understand-ably caused contemporaries to question not only the politics of the party but also its grasp of the complexities of social reform.
