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 the dynamics of political and cultural change in late Imperial Russia and poses provocative questions about the pre-revolutionary antecedents of 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 and literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
Heralds of Revolution is essential reading for historians in and outside the Russian field * The Historian *
Morrissey tells this story, and her own, with great intelligence and sophistication. Her admirable effort is the most successful yet in the Russian and Soviet field at examining very carefully, and on the basis of extensive archival research and rich memoir literature, the inextricable links between discourse and consciousness, and the ways in which discourse itself structures social behavior as well as social meaning * The Historian *
