Hi, I'm in the middle of doing my coursework on whether the Tsars were more repressive than the Communists or vice versa. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas, books to recommend or historical debates on the subject? Thanks

Currently doing the same topic but as my exam topic, books I personally used and was recommened was Access to History Russia and its Rulers 1855-1964, probably a bit too heavy on content for coursework though.

A really good, if a little hefty book is: A people's Tragedy: The Russian Revolution from 1891-1924 by Orlando Figes. Your question itself is very interesting because the answer changes depending on whether you are grouping or viewing them as individual leader.

I'm doing the AQA coursework on Russian rulers too, but ours is focusing on World War One as the most significant turning point then considering other factors. I'm struggling with turning points regarding Stalin, any ideas?

You could use the Ezhovschina and other purges as an example of how it turned from a moderate government into a very harsh and brutal one. I don't know whether that classes as a turning point though..
