Russia History IA OPVL Help

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I am doing my history IA and I am stuck on the limitations of this particular book. What are some general limitations of books I could mention in the OPVL? Or if any of you know this book or author specifically: A History of Russia by Riasanovsky. 

My IA is on Stolypin's agrarian reforms. 

Thank you.

The year of the book’s publication might be a limitation. For example, stuff written during the reign of Stalin (1924-1953) had access to far less documents than stuff written in the 1990’s. Due to censorship, not more recent docs  

Also, whatever camp the historian belongs to is a limitation. I am no familiar enough with Riasanovsky’s work to know where he stands, unfortunately. It can be a straight forward as since he’s an American, I cannot learn how a historian born in Russia would interpret the reforms.
