Hello,

So for my coursework, my question has to do with the Russian peasants being more of a threat to the Tsarist autocracy compared to the Soviet rule between 1855-1953. I was wondering if anyone had any materials that I could use to help me answer this question. To be more specific, I need help with finding information on how threatening the Russian peasants were for the Soviet rule compared to the Tsarist autocracy. I have information on how they were a threat to the Tsars just not the Soviets.

Thank you.

Hello,

So for my coursework, my question has to do with the Russian peasants being more of a threat to the Tsarist autocracy or Soviet rule between 1855-1953. I was wondering if anyone has any materials that I could use to help me answer this question. To be more specific, I need help with finding information on the Russian peasant's reaction to Soviet rule.

Thank you.
What is the exact title?
More of a threat than whom or what?
How much work have you done?
I would plan the essay and do the basic research from 2-3 decent textbooks first.
Know the period and events.,
Do a timeline with events and points of interest during which you feel either Tsarism or the Communists were under threat. For a place stop you could mean a threat to staying in power.

What do you mean by threat?
Then start a list of threats from other sources?
Other classes.
Politics.
Events
War
Economy
Outside powers?


Threats posed by peasantry?
What events did they have major influence or contribute to?
What ways did they support the regime?
What ways did they destabilise and oppose?
What did regimes do about it?

Evaluation were they really a threat?

Once you have looked at 3,4,5 decent textbooks on Russia, then use the bibliography or footnotes to id further reading on peasant related sources or use Amazon for cheap specialist second hand books or the library of maybe your local uni. There are some cheap ones on there.

That is how I would start to tackle the question.
