This course investigates the struggles among Soviet leaders during the first major crises facing the Bolsheviks: civil war, economic collapse and revival, Lenin's death, the experiments of the 1920s with cultural transformation and women's liberation, the evolution of the Communist International, and other Soviet foreign and domestic challenges. The political machinations and ideological manipulations surrounding Stalin's victory over Trotsky and Bukharin will receive special attention.
