'How successful were Alexander’s II reforms in transforming Russian society?

  • 0 votes

Doing some extra work for History and I'm trying to answer this question. I have all the relevant content to answer this question but I'm not sure how to apply the knowledge or plan it.

I have a table with the positives and negatives of each reform.
I was thinking... brief 1/2 sentence intro... paragraph on military reforms, local government reforms, judicial reforms, educational reforms, censorship reform, economic reforms, church reforms... each with an example of positive effects and negative effects and how the particular reform did or didn't transform Russian society.. And then a conclusion on whether I believe Alexander was successful...bringing into account the further reactionary reforms, further opposition, assasination attempt etc.?
In these paragraphs I'm not sure whether to state a few reforms, or just their effects?
I've just got this summary question from the AQA History Tsarist Russia 1855-1917 book and it doesn’t state whether it's a 12/24 mark question..Have a feeling it would be 24 mark, hence the six paragraphs.. :/
