History

Annotated Bibliography for



Soviet Russia 1917–1953

[ADVANCED HIGHER]

Faith Geddes

Foreword
Since the introduction of the policy of glasnost or ‘openness’ in 1985, a great deal of new evidence about the period 1917–1953 has emerged from Soviet archives. Many new works by Russian and Western historians and updated editions of older ones have been published. The emphasis in this bibliography is on recent works, and the list is far from exhaustive. There is no implication that the new evidence has rendered earlier works obsolete, or that works that have been omitted are of less value. Many of the works included have bibliographies on specific topics and attention has been drawn to some that are particularly useful.

The bibliography in this booklet is divided into three parts:


Section 1 lists basic texts and study guides suitable for students.

Section 2 lists works more suitable for teachers or dissertation purposes.

Section 3 covers other sources, such as periodicals, audio-visual and electronic media.
