I had to use this book when I resat the Russia history course in January of this year, and I'm certain I couldn't have done it without the use of this book! For such a lengthy and intricate course, it's a huge help to see everything laid out so clearly and colourfully with everything that you need to know. I would definitely recommend both this, and the follow-on book "Stalin's Russia" to anyone studying this course of history!

I love this guide!! I bought this book for my AS-Level History revision. It's a fab revision tool to use as it condenses everything down and is a good tool to use once you're going over all your material.
I wouldn't recommend this book to learn from, it's only perfect for revision. If you're looking for a good book to study from I would 100% recommend the Edexcel GCE History: Russia in Revolution, 1881 - 1924 ( http://amzn.to/1SmoxZt ) book. It's amazing! This book gave me everything I could possibley need to know for my course.
