A revolution in march: The overthrow of tsarism in Krasnoiarsk

Alistair Dickins

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


One of the outstanding features of the overthrow of tsarism was its comprehensive nature. Within weeks of the Petrograd uprising in late February, tsarist authorities were deposed across the whole Russian empire. This article examines how revolution was achieved in a key Siberian locality, Krasnoiarsk, focussing especially on the organizational structures which were used to mobilize local actors against the old regime. Drawing on previously untapped local archival sources and memoirs, it traces the ways in which revolutionary action was organized and achieved its goals in this provincial setting.
