258 pages. "On the adbication of Nicholas II Russia's new rulers found themselves confronted by a host of problems, two of which were particularly urgent. What was to be the new government's relationship to its rival in power, the Petrograd Soviet, and what was to be its position on the war and on the aims for which Russia was fighting? To a large degree the answer to the first question depended on the Provisional Government's response to the second. This in turn depended on a third: how did the Tsar's successors conceive of Russia's role and place in Europe? Expressed in the terms of 1917, should the nation still struggle for Constantinople and the reassertion of Russian preponderance in the Balkans? Or should the Russian people fight now only in defense of the revolution and for the democratic principles it proclaimed?" - from Abstract. A dissertation presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of Yale University in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Average wear. Green boards with gilt lettering upon spine.
