Reinventing Russia 3rd edition offers history students an in-depth account of the politics and passion of the Russian Revolution. This engaging and rigorous narrative illuminates one of the twentieth century’s most tumultuous periods, from the end of Tsarist Russia through to the death of Vladimir Lenin. Challenging, varied activities and captivating visual sources help students grapple with the profound political, social, cultural and moral questions of the era.

This third edition has been revised to make it even more accessible to a wide range of readers. New chapter introductions and shorter chapters improve usability for students and teachers in the classroom. Key content is flagged within chapters and summarised at the end of each chapter so that students can easily identify examinable material. Glossary words are defined in the margin and language has been simplified—without losing the depth of conceptual content that has made this book so popular with teachers and students.
