This series of podcasts supports the specification content for the AQA AS and A Level History option 1H Tsarist and Communist Russia 1855-1964, and complements the series of Oxford AQA History for A Level textbooks and revision guides published by Oxford University Press. The podcasts explore some of the key debates and controversies raised by this rich period of Russian history, and break down some of the complex issues of this era. They combine a clear and compelling analysis of events with some deliberately provocative views, challenging listeners to penetrate more deeply into the minds and actions of those involved and form their own judgements. The podcasts are enriched by a range of gripping audio material which adds colour to the historical narrative. Overall the podcasts will provide valuable support and revision material for anyone studying this examination option, and will also be welcome listening for anyone with an interest in modern Russia who wishes to understand more fully its complex political and human story. Finally, we are delighted to welcome Sally Waller in her first series for Audiopi. Sally Waller is a respected History author and she has many years of examining experience.
