For the centenary of the Russian Revolution, I have chosen three books to dive into, the first of which is "A People’s Tragedy" by a renowned British historian Orlando Figes. This mammoth thousand page volume is a testament to Western scholarship on the subject and its undeniable place in world history studies. Several hundred pages in, I can attest that the work is not only suited for an academic, but for anyone with an interest in the topic (though perhaps some background information is required, for that I would recommend the Oxford companion). Figes writes an articulate narrative that transcends the prototypical redundant babble of self-absorbed professors. Clear, concise and not without an opinion, Figes’ thesis revolves around the notion of “tragedy” and how Russian people were in a lose-lose situation, making it clear that there was no easy solution (is there ever?). Yet the distinct moments demonstrated by Figes when the transition to a constitutional monarchy seemed possible were it not for the backwardness of the Tsarist regime, make one almost cringe with bitter disappointment. One can only dream what that scenario would've lead to, instead, the reader braces himself for the horrors that lay ahead. #Russian #Revolution #RussianRevolution #History #Centenary #1917 #РусскаяРеволюция #book #literature #booksofinstagram #instabooks #booksofig #read #reading #knowledge

Kocain Mağarası; Giriş ağzı yaklaşık 20 metre yüksekliğinde ve 75 metre genişliğindedir. Uzunluğu ise 633 metre olup ana hatlarıyla iki büyük salondan oluşmakta, tavan yüksekliği yer yer 80 metreye varmaktadır. Prehistorik dönemden Bizans dönemine kadar bölge arkeolojisine ışık tutan mağaranın okunabilen yazıtlarından erken Hıristiyanlık döneminde de dinsel bir işlevi olduğu anlaşılmaktadır. ⛰🇹🇷 #Kocain #Cave #KocainMağarası #Road #History #Archaeology #Arkeoloji #Mağara #KocainCave #Travel #Sunny #Holiday #Me #Natural #City #Travelingram #TravelBlogger #TravelBlog #TravelPhotography #Photographer #HistoricalPlace #HistoryLover #Kovanlık #Döşemealtı #Antalya #Türkiye #Turkey #Instasize #InstaTurkey

Ты очень красивая, когда плачешь. Я помню, что шоколад помогает поднять тебе настроение, поэтому я всегда старался покупать для тебя шоколадки, а ты каждый раз улыбалась этой плитке, словно маленький ребёнок. Ты чудесная и невероятно умная девочка. Принижая себя, ты только поднимала свою самооценку в моих глазах. Иногда я думал, что ты и есть тот идеал, который нужен каждому человеку, в частности - мне. Ты могла обычный хмурый день превратить во что-то незабываемое. Приключения, без которых твоя жизнь попросту не может обходиться, просто сводят с ума. Ты заставляешь людей идти на невероятные поступки и совершать то, что в жизни бы никто не сделал. Таких людей очень мало. Настоящих, живых, мыслящих. Тех, кто не прячется за чужими жизнями и не пытается показаться в наилучшем свете. Ты-наилучший свет. И все бы было прекрасно, если бы не одно «но». Я не люблю тебя. . . . #retro #insta #instagirl #girl #pastel #pastelgrunge #grunge #soft #softgrunge #dolly #doll #dollblush #girly #happy #kawaii #love #cute #memories #history #look #lookbook #lookoftheday #followme
