Russian history help Watch

Report Thread starter 5 years ago
I'm currently doing the edexcel modern history course From Autocracy to Dictatorship 1881-1924 (AS). I'm doing some consolidation work by going through past questions and noting points that I could make on them. The question I'm working on is: 'To what extent was the Tsarist system of government modified in the years 1881-1914?'
One point I've made is on Russification, which was a way that the Tsar maintained power over Russia as he believed that autocracy, nationality and orthodoxy were integral to each other. My question is did Russification decline in this time period, or is this a point which should be under what didn't change?

Any other points you have on this question would also be useful

I think you could make a point about the Duma being established in 1905, and relate it to the question in the sense that it was new and modern for Russia, but Nicholas II didn't listen to it, thus not having a huge effect.

As for Russification declining, you could discuss the emergence of political opponents at the turn of the 20th Century, with the Social Democrats, and Bolsheviks and Mensheviks stemming from that, Socialist Revolutionaries and Liberals, so new ideas were being brought into the public eye.

Hope I could help!
