Semen Kanatchikov, born in a central Russian village in 1879, was one of the thousands of peasants who made the transition from traditional village life to the life of an urban factory worker in Moscow and St. Petersburg in the last years of the nineteenth century. Unlike the others, however, he recorded his personal and political experiences (up to the eve of the 1905 Revolution) in an autobiography. First published in the Soviet Union in the 1920's, this memoir gives us the richest and most thoughtful firsthand account we have of life among the urban lower classes in Imperial Russia.
