The Access to History series is the most popular and trusted series for AS and A level history students. The new editions combine all the strengths of this well-loved series with a new design and features that allow all students access to the content and study skills needed to achieve exam success. This title draws on content from the bestselling titles 'Reaction and Revolution: Russia 1894–1924' and 'Bolshevik and Stalinist Russia 1918–56'. It has been completely revised and updated to match the 2008 OCR AS specification and is now focused on the period from 1894–1941.
It begins with the situation in Russia under Tsar Nicholas II and then goes on to examine the causes and effects of the 1905 and 1917 revolutions, the Bolshevik struggle to gain power, and the eventual rise of Stalin. The political, economic and social developments through this period and the effects of these are explored and analysed throughout. Throughout the book key dates, terms and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by an examiner for the OCR specification provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
