Many students can feel daunted by primary sources and tend to overlook them or use them only superficially.
This book provides a sufficient range of sources to allow students to consider in some depth the key events and themes in the reigns of the last 5 Russian tsars without feeling totally swamped by a too large choice of sources. Some of the sources are only a few lines long - while others extend to two or more pages. Background information is given on each of the tsars, and pertinent questions are asked on each of the sources.
The questions provide a both a quick test of comprehension and an opportunity for longer class discussion or written essay practice.
