Alex Richardson Host: Alex is a History teacher at Warlingham School, with an MRes in History from Goldsmiths University. His specialist areas are the German Revolution of 1918, the Cold War, and the history of the early Soviet Union.

Between 1905 and 1914 there was growing opposition to Tsarism in Russia following the crushing of the 1905 revolution. In this class, students will examine the growth of this opposition. They will also explore the role of liberal opposition under leaders like Pyotr Struve, along with socialism in the form of the Social Revolutionary Party. This class is aimed at A-level History students, however, it would be a really useful class for younger students wanting to get ahead or those who wish to explore an interest in Russian History.
