Vekhi--also known under the English title Landmarks or Signposts--is a collection of essays first published in Moscow in 1909. Writing from various points of view, the authors, nevertheless, all reflect the experience of Russia's failed 1905 revolution--a failure to be blamed not only on the repressive forces of the autocracy, but also on the intellectual bankruptcy of the intelligentsia and the Russian nation's inability to use freedom constructively. They saw as their task the construction of the moral, religious, philosophical underpinnings of a new, liberal order in Russia. Condemned by Lenin, rediscovered by dissidents and widely circulated in post-Soviet Russia today, the Vekhi essays have tremendous resonance. This new edition of Shatz and Zimmerman's highly praised translation will be welcomed by college instructors in a wide array of courses and by anyone who wants to grasp the terms of discussion in the postrevolutionary Russia of today.
