Historiography on the Russian Revolution.

One of the elements that we study in History AS is Historiography. 

Furay and Salevouris (1988) define historiography as “the study of the way history has been and is written – the history of historical writing… When you study ‘historiography’ you do not study the events of the past directly, but the changing interpretations of those events in the works of individual historians.”
