What is the meaning of revolution in the twenty-first century? One hundred years ago ‘October 1917’ was a unique event inspiring socialists and oppressed peoples and it became an inevitable point of reference for 20th century politics. Today the left needs both to come to terms with this legacy and to transcend it, through a critical reappraisal of its broad effects – positive and negative – on political, intellectual and cultural life, considering also new revolutions after 1917. The main point of the volume is to look forward. Nowadays, when major reform seems as unlikely as revolution, it is necessary to rethink the relationship between capitalist crises and both revolution and reform. Change needs to be understood in relation to the distinct trajectories of radical politics in different regions.
