Whether you are studying the Russian Revolution or just want to gain some knowledge on it, this book is a must have. Michael Lynch clearly explains everything, and does not do what is common in historians, leave you confused. The simplicity of this highly detailed book is something you don't come across often. If you are doing the Russian Revolution for AS or A Level, trust me, this book is your bible!

R&R was a book on my book list for my History A level on Russia. I read it, and as a student I found it the most helpful book I have got (and I've got plenty!). It sets out clearly and in understandable language the events of the Revolution, as well as providing an insight to why this event occured. The only problem I have found is the fact that sometimes events are not linked back to/explained/remind you if they are futher on in the book, but this can be remidied by using the index! R&R is also suitable if you are simply interested in the period of time; it is comprehensive and intelligent, whilst not alienating the reader with technical historical jargon. For students and the interested alike, I would recomend ANY of the 'access to history' books (which R&R is part of); we use them all the time & and they are by far the comprehensivly written, and a lot cheaper than most other history textbooks (which is, of course, an important factor for poor students!). I would also recommend "A People' Tradedy - The Russian Revolution" by Orlando Figes. It takes a bit of time to go through (about 2" thick), but provides an insight to the actual people, with testimonies from the people, which R&R, being a thin book (only 150 pages) lacks.

I've been using this book for my AS course and have found it invaluable. It explains all the polical terms, key figures, key ideals and key events in easily understandable language. Ideal if you're new to political history and terms.

A magnificent account of the Russian Revolution for the new generation, this is essential for the AS History student. Vast in scope and exhaustive in research, it is complex enough to explore deeply the Russian Revolution, yet is simple enough to allow freely understandable reading.

Very informative and covered the subject well but the style was more of a students reference book than a "good read". It served my purpose but not in the Anthony Beevor class of subject presentation.

I cannot stress how easy it is to digest all the information regarding the Russian Revolution in just this one small book. A must buy for any student/teacher/casual reader!

This book is perfect for teaching the Russian revolutions, but it was not the 'nearly new' quality advertised - very battered and tatty copy.
