During the 1996-97 session Dr Heywood completed the cataloguing of the Bunin collections of the Leeds Russian Archive, Brotherton Library, University of Leeds. The catalogue should be published in printed and on-line versions in 1999 once the Archive has numbered and packed the documents. His monograph on Soviet economic reconstruction in the early 1920's will appear from Cambridge University Press in June 1999 as Modernising Lenin's Russia: Economic Reconstruction, Foreign Trade and the Railways. He continues to collaborate with J N Westwood and I D C Button on annual analyses of contemporary railway affairs in the FSU for the Jane's World Railways reference series. A period of sabbatical leave in July 1996 - January 1997 was used mainly to begin archive work for a monograph on Russian foreign supply policy during the First World War and a biography of an important Russian railway engineer, Professor Iu V Lomonosov. The autumn of 1996 was spent in Russian archives thanks to British Academy funding.

With Dr David Collins (University of Leeds), Dr Heywood organised the XXII, XXIII, XXIV conferences of the Study Group on the Russian Revolution, which were held at Leeds in January 1996, January 1997 and January 1998 respectively. Dr Heywood was appointed as the Study Group’s Secretary at the 1997 AGM.
