Dispatches From the Revolution

Dispatches From the Revolution

Russia 1916-18

by Morgan Philips-Price

Edited by Tania Rose

A graphic and personal account of the Russian revolution by the Manchester Guardian's correspondent in Moscow
As special correspondent for the Manchester Guardian, Price was one of the few Englishmen to witness all phases of the Russian Revolution.

His remarkable writings provide a firsthand account of the momentous events, and include his meetings with Lenin and the Bolshevik leaders.

Morgan Philips-Price's writings for the Manchester Guardian won him wide acclaim. During his long career he also reported for the Daily Herald, Izvestia and the New York Herald Tribune and authored several books including A Diplomatic History of the War 1914; War and Revolution in Asiatic Russia (1918) and Dispatches from the Weimar Republic.

Tania Rose was the daughter of Morgan Philips-Price and collaborated on screenplays for Ealing Studios as well as the Oscar-winning Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.

'An extraordinarily valuable compilation' - Eric Hobsbawm 'Price was a man with an instinctive feel for politics. He was better placed than most reporters to understand the depth of popular desire for change' - Jonathan Steele, The Guardian 'A vivid account and complimentary to Reed's masterpiece Ten Days That Shook the World ... This fascinating book is an excellent insight to the revolutionary events of 1917-18, and how they transformed a young upper-class liberal into a fervent revolutionary' - Socialist Appeal
