im doing my A2 coursework at the moment and im finding it hard to find any good sources on kerensky and the provisional government in answering this question;
assess the view that the failures of the Provisional Govt were the main factors in enabling lenin and the bolsheviks to seize power"
any help would be greatly appreciated
There's loads of good stuff out there. Here's a list, in a rough order of what I've found best (ie, best mix of fact / opinion / readability / reputability)
Rethinking the Russian Revolution - Edward Acton
-The Russian Revolution - Graham Darby
-A People's Tragedy - Orlando Figes
-Years of Russia and the USSR, 1851 – 1991 – Evans and Jenkins (Hodder and Stoughton 2001)
-The Russian Revolution 1900–1927 (4th Edition) – Robert Service
I'm not doing work on your title, but I have found these very good for sources on feb 1917 revolution, and there seemed to be lots on Provisional Government matters too -so no promises on quality but I think it's a good place to start.
In return, I don't suppose you would have come across any good sources that would offer data on Brusilov offensive of 1916?
The Acton book mentioned above was an absolute GOLDMINE for historiography when I did my PS. Just use textbooks for general info. But Acton goes some way into explaining Kerensky the PG et al. with all the schools of historiography considered
