Born in 1852 in the last years of serfdom, Vera Figner came of age as Imperial Russian society was being rocked by the massive upheaval that culminated in the Bolshevik revolution of 1917. At first a champion of populist causes and womens higher education, Figner later became a leader of the terrorist party the Peoples Will and was an accomplice in the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881.

Drawing on extensive archival research and careful reading of Figners copious memoirs, Lynne Ann Hartnett reveals how Figner survived the Bolshevik revolution and Stalins Great Purges and died a lionized revolutionary legend as the Nazis bore down on Moscow in 1942.
