Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky was the author of some of the most exciting novels ever written, full of unforgettable characters and thrilling plots, and bursting with life. They also address life's most fundamental problems - questions of faith and reason; the nature of freedom; the power of beauty; and above all, what it means to be human.

Dostoevsky's Russians is a personal reflection on the pleasures of reading Dostoevsky, and a response to the questions that his novels present. Dostoevsky's greatest characters, including Raskolnikov, Nastasya Filippovna and the Karamazov brothers, guide the reader through the cultural, historical and biographical context of Dostoevsky's work. Suitable for students and general readers alike, Dostoevsky's Russians goes beyond the realm of traditional criticism to offer an engaging and accessible introduction to one of the giants of world literature.
