5.0 out of 5 stars The comprehensive A level text 25 Sep 2002
Format:Paperback
This book is a must for all students who are studying Russian History at both A level and as under graduates. The information is detailed, but very accessible to all reading standards.
The tasks suggested are also excellent as they focus on evaluating the issues surrounding Russia following the Revolutions and the reign of Stalin.
The books is not merely text heavy either. There are clear cartoons, sources and diagrams which explain themes and issues and help to consolidate the key points visually.
I highly recommend this book as it is a worthwhile investment for any students of Russian History.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for A Level's 7 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this textbook under the guidance of my A Level History teacher, one of the best I have ever had! Very comprehensive with quotes, photographs, detailed biographies and any words/terms fully explained for those unfamiliar with the era. I used this alongside other books primarily about Stalin and Lenin, I also read the works of Marx but that's not entirely necessary for an A Level History student. This also comes in handy for anyone studying politics and possibly parts of sociology (i used it for all these subjects)

2.0 out of 5 stars Disaspointing 10 Feb 2012
By L. T.
Format:Paperback
It wasn't in excellent condition and either the book had been given to you by the school or you had secretly taken from them. I know that when we are students it is good to earn a bit of money but to be honest I would never go to this level to earn some. Surely the amazing private school that cost so much has realised by now that there book has disappeared. But on the plus side well done for the quick delivery of the book.
