This paper provides a historic and economic perspective on the events that lead to the Russian and Chinese communist revolutions. The author first describes the Russian Revolution and the factors that contributed to the overthrow of the Czarist regime. In particular, the 1905 Revolution is seen as a precursor to the 1917 Communist Revolution. The paper then describes how the events in Russia influenced China, and how the Chinese Revolution took a different path than Russia's. The results of both revolutions are traced to present day.
