CORPORA TI SM OR DEMOCRACY: THE RUSSIAN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT OF 1917 World War I and the Russian Revolution each transformed the social and political landscapes of twentieth century Europe and indeed the world. Revo- lution in Russia has left its own stunning legacy as worked out in the tragic seventy-four year history of the Soviet Union with its distorted and even grotesque achievements and excesses and its attempts to fulfill the Soviet project of overcoming the bourgeois phase of history and establishing its opposite, socialism.
