This work first addresses the idea that the Russian Revolution of 1917 was inevitable, given the charged events that had occurred in and around Russia preceding the event. It then looks at the issue from the opposite angle, describing ways in which it might have never happened. Given the extreme nature of the events and the almost unavoidable idea that the way history has occurred is the only way it could have, in hindsight, there is a need to better understand the concept from what happened and what could have happened. It states that it is also an accepted fact that understanding Russia is impossible without a clear understanding of her history, both as a Soviet state and as an imperial power. The paper states that change was inevitable, but also asks if that is true of the Russian Revolution of 1917 as well.
