A detailed history of Russia and the Soviet Union throughout the turbulent twentieth century. Strongly narrative in approach, the book also has many visual and written sources to aid students' understanding.
...it makes good use of both written and pictorial sources...a good buy due to its attractive presentation, use of colour and use of less familiar source materials. Scottish Association of Teachers of History
