The main focus is on the years of political and artistic upheaval and the political and artistic influence of Russia's "creative explosion" that changed the face of Western culture. The book is written in a narrative form and is very well illustrated with numerous pictures and photographs, many of them never published before. According to the front flap, the book conveys "the emotions and sufferings of the unsung heroes and victims of the revolution-the narod, the Russian people themselves."
