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 groundbreaking monograph studies of the Russian Provisional Government produced by historians working in the USSR from the 1920s to the 1980s. This article aims to publicise key publications on the history of the Russian Provisional Government that 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 marxsim.
