A tad irrelevant but I have an excellent quote for an essay on the Purges from Stephen Cohen and I know that it's genuine because we were given a list of quotes from our teacher, but I cannot seem to find a book to reference it from and I can't lie in an official essay and my teacher can't really help. If someone knew it would be much appreciated, here's the quote:

"you cannot explain the Great Terror against the Party without focusing on Stalin’s personality."


Thanks

I hope for Russia in revolution it is:
"To what extent were the Bolsheviks responsible for teachers downfall of the Provisional Government"

And for stalin I really really really want it to be
"to what extent is the lend lease act responsible for the success of the soviet victory in ww2"

But a similar question came up in Jan 2013 for stalin so I doubt that

For Stalin, which I did last year, I found that one of the two questions will always be either on the economy (five year plans or collectivisation) or the power struggle.

Quotes and historiography are kind of vital, it depends though, I'm not actually doing A levels, but Advanced Higher's and for them you must have historian's arguments. I presume it's the same though for A levels.

I'm hoping the Great Terror! It hasn't really come up as a solitary question either, so there's hope

There has always been a question about bolshevik consolidation of power or the fall of provisional goverment. I think its going to be the fall of PG because bolshevik consolidation of power has come up few times in a row.

I've got some useful notes on this in my textbook, so I can help you out a little.

Basically with Causation, you should do one paragraph for each factor, preferably with the factor in the question or the most important one first. For example:

How accurate is it say to say that the growth of reformist groups in the years from 1881 was the main cause for the 1905 Revolution?

- Growth of Reformist Groups (The groups themselves, their popularity, the things, such as urban conditions, which made them popular)
- Peasant Unrest, Population Growth, High Taxes
- Reactionary, Unrepresentative Government
- Russo-Japanese War
- Bloody Sunday and Protests

Then with Change, you should do several paragraphs with reasons and factors in favour of the question, and several paragraphs against (to be safe, probably a good idea to write a little more for whichever side you agree with). For example:

How far do you agree that the economy of Tsarist Russia was transformed in the years to 1914?

- Financial Reforms under Alexander III
- Sergei Witte and the 'Great Spurt'
- Stolypin's Reforms
- Russia still very agrarian, unchanged
- Still backwards compared to West

And that's all there is to it. The main thing is to just make sure you know whether the question is about Causation or about Change.
