Hist 12: Fri 10 Feb

Today, we reviewed Marx's vision for the transition from capitalism to the workers' utopia.  Next, we started the study of the events that led to the 1905 October Manifesto - really the Tsar's last chance to save his throne.  You should know about the Russo-Japanese War and the dissatisfaction caused by the Portsmouth Treaty.  Bloody Sunday and Father Gapon are also must knows.  We also looked at the different groups that made up Russian society at the turn of the century.  Please read the handout on the Stolypin agrarian reforms for homework.
