My Disillusionment in Russia is a book published in 1923 by Emma Goldman describing her experiences in Soviet Russia from 1920 to 1921, where she saw the aftermath of the Russian Revolution of 1917. In it, she discusses how her sympathy towards the revolution became hatred of the Bolsheviks as she saw the party as authoritarian and contrary to the spirit of the revolution.

She had intended to discuss how Bolshevik rule was in fact a betrayal of the principles of revolution in a work originally entitled My Two Years in Russia. However, the publishers altered the title and omitted the final chapters. These alterations produced a book that conveyed disillusionment with the Revolution rather than the pseudo-revolutionary tactics of the Bolsheviks.

After much haranguing with the publishers, My Further Disillusionment in Russia (also titled by the publisher) was released containing the omitted chapters, in 1924.
