As someone who recently took this course at AS, I can honestly say that this textbook was something of a lifesaver. While providing information in easy-to-read and understand language, with pictures, sources, and historians' intepretations - it was my revision partner all through history. There are example questions which helped me get a feel for what was to come in the exam.
For all current and future students studying the Impact of Stalin at AS - buy this. It is totally worth the investment.

I can highly recommend this book for students young and old. It is superb for calming down after a stressful history lesson as it smells heavenly when bought new. If not bought new, then I can not recommend this book as its primary use would then be gone. The smell considerably encourages students to revise this period of the world's history using this book as it is a real treat to smell. Warning overuse can lead to addiction.
