 SparkNotes: The Russian Revolution (1917-1921): The Provisional Government, March-September 1917
The Provisional Government (PG), constituted by Duma deputies despite Nicholas's dissolution decree in February and led by its only socialist minister, Alexander Kerensky (he was, specifically, a member of the Socialist Revolutionaries, or Peasant-Lovers), was then forced to lead Russia through a time of devastating war abroad and amazing social upheaval at home.
It would seem easy to understand why, then, history has judged the Provisional Government so harshly; however, historians must understand the context of historical events--any government in that same position was probably doomed to failure.
On March 8, 1917, Kerensky announced its Provisional Government Programme of democratic principles and political goals, envisioning a liberal democratic government on the Western model with proper guarantees for civil and political rights.
