First published in 1933, "The Romantic Exiles" is a unique and spirited biography of Alexander Herzen (1812-1868), a self-exiled Russian aristocrat who was the leader of a small group of revolutionary-minded expatriates. Their story is the record of the inevitable and disastrous linkage of political and emotional liberalism in the two decades following the Romantic rebellion of the 1830's; and it is the story of the destruction of their ideals and achievements (political and personal) due to shifting ideologies and the passage of time.

Great figures are conjured up with real skill by Mr. Carr's able pen."--"The New York Times"
