about

Reading Russian revolutionary culture through its stories, author Susan Morrissey examines how the quest for consciousness evolved into a master-plot of student radicalism. Based on interdisciplinary sources and extensive research in Russian archives, this study throws new light on thedynamics of political and cultural change in late Imperial Russia and poses provocative questions about both the pre-revolutionary antecedents and the founding myths of the Soviet Union. This work will appeal to historians of Russia and the Soviet Union, as well as specialists in Slavic culture andliterature.
Susan Morrissey is currently Research Fellow at Friedrich-Alexander Universitat in Germany.

"Morrissey makes good use of memoirs of student life. She ably demonstrates concurrences of the mythical and the real. Her style is crisp and lucid and a pleasure to read."--Journal of Modern History
