This review is from: Russia 1855-1991: From Tsars to Commissars (Oxford Advanced History) (Paperback)
This text book is aimed at secondary level in general but I have found it particularly useful for supplementing Sally Waller's 'Tsarist Russia, 1855-1917' for AQA AS history (HIS 1H). Waller's book is essential but it could do with more detail on the context of the reforms in nineteenth century Russia. Oxley's text supplies this and a lot more besides.
There are plenty of extracts from primary sources which make give a more authentic impression of the events. I would highly recommend it to anyone studying this module or with an interest in how Russia's attempts to modernize fomented rebellion.
