...Russian Revolution: Agrarian or Not? Why might we say that the Russian Revolution was primarily a peasant/agrarian revolution? The Russian Revolution was primarily a peasant revolution because the fall of the Tsarist government had its roots in the serfdom of the peasants, exploitation by the peasant communes and peasant indebtedness of the nineteenth century. The economic failure of Russian agriculture, and the Stolypin land reforms, led to the peasant insurrections of 1905 which caused the empire to crumble. The Bolsheviks were able to seize and hold power in October 1917 only by using the collectivization of the peasantry and accepting the peasant seizure of land. Why might we say... The Russian...

While GDP growth slightly slowed down the following year at 7.2%, the economy still grew a healthy 6.4% in 2005.
