Historiography of the Russian Provisional Government 1917 in the USSR
The term 'soviet historians' is often used as a blanket term to describe an ideologically constrained profession struggling in an environment inhospitable to serious scholarship. This article focuses upon ground-breaking monograph studies of the Russian Provisional Government, produced by historians working in the USSR from the 1920s to the 1980s. It aims to publicise key publications on the history of the Russian Provisional Government. These texts are little known. Indeed they suggest that one cannot write off these historians as somehow merely ideological. They display a high level of scholarship and scholarly standards, disagreeing amongst themselves over interpretations and often employing methods outside of marxism.

- Twentieth Century Communism provides an international forum for the latest research on the subject and an entry-point into key developments and debates not immediately accessible to English-language historians. Its main focus is on the period of the Russian revolution (1917-91) and on the activities of communist parties themselves but its remit also extends to the movement's antecedents and rivals, the responses to communism of political competitors and state systems, and to the cultural as well as political influence of communism.
