POLITICS AND THE PEOPLE INREVOLUTIONARY RUSSIA 
 After the collapse of the Romanov dynasty in February 
1917
, Rus-sia was subject to an eight-month experiment in democracy. SarahBadcock studies its failure through an exploration of the experiencesand motivations of ordinary men and women, urban and rural, mili-taryandcivilian.Usingpreviouslyneglecteddocumentsfromregionalarchives,sheoffersanewhistoryoftherevolutionasexperiencedinthetwoVolgaprovincesofNizhegorodandKazan.Sheexposestheconfu-sions and contradictions between political elites and ordinary peopleand emphasises the role of the latter as political actors. By looking beyond Petersburg and Moscow, she shows how local concerns, con-ditions and interests were foremost in shaping how the revolution was received and understood. She also reveals the ways in which thesmall group of intellectuals who dominated the high political scene of 
1917
had their political alternatives circumscribed by the desires anddemands of ordinary people.
