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.
