MAIN IDEA: REVOLUTION Long-term social
unrest in Russia exploded in
revolution, and ushered in the
first Communist government.
SETTING THE STAGE The Russian Revolution was like a firecracker with a
very long fuse. The explosion came in 1917, yet the fuse had been burning for
nearly a century. The cruel, oppressive rule of most 19th-century czars caused
widespread social unrest for decades. Army officers revolted in 1825. Secret revolutionary groups plotted to overthrow the government. In 1881, revolutionaries
angry over the slow pace of political change assassinated the reform-minded
czar, Alexander II. Russia was heading toward a full-scale revolution.
