Description

An engaging range of period texts and theme books for AS and A Level history.

Particular attention is paid to the French Revolution of 1789, the 1848 Revolutions, the 1871 Paris Commune and the Russian Revolution of 1917. Revolutions contains a selection of primary and secondary sources.show more
