ClandesTime 004 – Conspiracy Theories: The Bolshevik Revolution

Published September 30th 2013 | Tags: , , , , , ,

The Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 has long been the focus for conspiracy theories both grand and small. In this episode I look at the background to the revolution, what led up to it and its aftermath. I analyse Anthony Sutton’s book Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution and look at how his research has spawned much more grandiose theories than his work supports and describes.
