"Herzen's novel played a significant part in the intellectual ferment of the 1840s. It is an important book in social and moral terms, and wonderfully expressive of Herzen's personality."-Isaiah BerlinAlexander Herzen was one of the major figures in Russian intellectual life in the nineteenth century. Who Is to Blame? was his first novel. A revealing document and a noteworthy contribution to Russian literature in its own right, it establishes the origins of Herzen's spiritual quest and the outlines of his emerging social and political beliefs, and it foreshadows his mature philosophical views.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Herzen's only novel is as much a social document as a fiction, since the many characters personify the major issues and types of the time. . . . Herzen's humorous and ironic development of plot and character suggests an answer to the title question: all are to blame for the injustice and aimlessness of Russian life."-Library Journal
"This edition of Who Is to Blame? demonstrates genuine involvement in the translator's craft by duplicating Herzen's barbed style and preserving the natural strengths of his prose."-Slavic Review
"The translation is excellent. . . . Katz catches the epigrammatic wit of the original-quite an accomplishment."-The New Republic
"Herzen was one of the most lucid, realistic, and gifted thinkers of his age and a founder of Russian socialism. . . . Who Is to Blame? remains of value for its acute social insights and Michael Katz has rendered it fluently into English."-Times Higher Education Supplement
