The First Time in History offers a firsthand account of life in Soviet Russia during a critical period of its history, from 1921 to 1923. Anna Louise Strong, a journalist who was politicized by the political upheavals in her time such as the Everett Massacre and the Seattle General strike, was invited to the USSR to document the work of building the world’s first socialist State. Her work of political journalism in to this end offers keen observations and insights that provide a vivid and nuanced portrayal of the social, economic, and political changes that took place during this pivotal time. Her reflections on the meaning of revolution, the nature of power, and the struggle for liberation remain as relevant today as they were nearly a century ago.
