Overview

From a renowned name in A Level history publishing, this is a Questions and Analysis title on a major period in Russian History. With all three exam boards offering modules on this popular subject at A Level, this book is an absolute must-have.

Looking at the many different aspects of the period 1855–1991 that are covered in A Level history, Stephen J. Lee examines and compares:

  • the ideologies of Tsarist autocracy and Soviet communism
  • parties and opposition to these regimes
  • the use of repression and terror
  • agriculture
  • industry
  • the class structure
  • the 1917 revolution
  • the impact of the First and Second World Wars on Russia.

Key elements of this book include:

  • each topic/issue forms a well-structured chapter: background; analysis; sources with questions; worked answers
  • a prominent historiography section – an important element of the new A2 history assessment
  • an incorporated A2 synoptic approach that teaches students to draw together their entire range of knowledge and skills to study one topic
  • guidance on how to answer the recently-introduced synoptic questions.

Involving the importance of understanding the connections between the essential characteristics of historical study, this key title is the one-stop shop for all history teachers and students.
