Original Language: Russian
Alexander Herzen became a representative figure in both Russia and the West as an irrepressible enemy and victim of tsarist oppression, and he made major theoretical contributions to the development of Russian socialist ideology. Herzen was an eyewitness to the 1848 Revolution in France and the rather operatic early episodes of revolution in the states of the Italian Peninsula. His description of events in Paris ranks with the works of Marx and Tocqueville as a classic account of the revolution. Judith Zimmerman's translation is elegant, idiomatic, highly accurate, and creatively annotated, bringing a major work by a figure considered to be one of the great prose stylists of the nineteenth century and certainly one of the most fascinating Russians of his time. -- Midwest Book Review
