Emma Goldman's manuscript, "My Two Years in Russia," was published as My Disillusionment in Russia (Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1923) without informing her of the title change, and ommitting the last twelve chapters of the manuscript. The ommitted chapters were published the following year as My Further Disillusionment in Russia (Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1924).

The version presented here is from the one volume, complete text, with an introduction by Rebecca West, My Disillusionment in Russia (London: C. W. Daniel Company, 1925). [Edited in hypertext with illustrations by Andrew Chrucky, March 2005.]
