Alexander Herzen (1812-1870) was the pre-eminent figure of 19th century Russian intelligentsia and the "father of Russian socialism". He was exiled to Siberia in 1933 for his activism in a group of young socialists and later moved to London where he founded the "Free Russian Press" to avoid Russian censorship. Herzen's revolutionary ideas of an unique "Russian path" of socialism were essentially influenced by European thinkers as Hegel, Mill and Proudhon. His contemporaries described him as "a distinguished Russian refugee, who endeavours to blend German philosophy, French political theory and English practical common sense with his original Russian nature."

"My exile in Siberia" contains a selection of Herzen's biographical writings. It was originally published 1855 and is still considered one of the greatest works of Russian exile literature.
