This review is from: Access to History: Stalin's Russia 1924-53 4th Edition (Paperback)
I was recommended this book by my AS teacher, it has so much information in it and lots of handy summary charts which are excellent for revsion. The book starts with Lenin and then goes on to the power struggle for leadership. I found the book great for extra information but hard to get into when i first started the topic as in a way it gives you too much detail, which i felt you got bogged down in. The sources particularly the pictures of collectivisation are extremly powerful in the book. It also has fantastic essay questions in them and guidence by examiners on how to answer them, I found this a fantastic aspect of the book.
