1.0 out of 5 stars Weak
Although this book is focused tightly on the demands of the course, is lightweight and easy to digest, it is just far too simplistic to give students a decent grasp of the period. Furthermore, it contains several significant factual errors. I would not recommend this book to anyone studying this period, and actively discourage my students from buying it.

This review is from: Edexcel GCE History: Russia in Revolution, 1881-1924: From Autocracy to Dictatorship (Paperback)
I have now been studying the History of Lenin and Statin for my AS course for half year and allowed this book to become my bible in the subject. As a resource book it is very effective, including key events simplistically. When learning the course this book is helpful as it allows you to understand the contents although it should be noted that this book shoudln't be the sole basis of your research. By all means the book is very effective in its portrayal of history but in order to get further details and depth necessary for higher grades further reading will need to be done, be it in the classroom or at home.

Therefore my criticisms of this book is that as it stands it wouldn't be sufficient to get a student through an exam if they sought a higher grade. However this has its advantages as it makes it appealing when it comes to revision as the information is simple and to the point, assisting in helping you remember. Furthermore its smaller size ensures that what you read you're more likely to remember for the exam, so if you are doing this course of history I would certainly recommend this book but be aware that it is useful for revision purposes and a general outline of the course. It may not be sufficient however for all the indepth information you require of this time period.

This review is from: Edexcel GCE History: Russia in Revolution, 1881-1924: From Autocracy to Dictatorship (Paperback)
This book has really helped me in my history A-level course. The information is broken down and it is very easy to read. The diagrams are also very helpful and this book gives a good overview. The only bad point is that it can sometimes lack in detail.
