Description:

A superb new translation of Dostoyevskys chilling and prophetic novel of revolutionary fanaticism Pyotr and Stavrogin are the leaders of a Russian revolutionary cell. Their aim is to overthrow the Tsar, destroy society, and seize power for themselves. Together they train terrorists who are willing to lay down their lives to accomplish their goals. But when the group is threatened with exposure, will their recruits be willing to kill one of their own to cover their tracks? Savage and powerful yet lively and often comic, Demonswas inspired by a real-life political murder and is a scathing and eerily prescient indictment of those who use violence to serve their beliefs.

One of the most powerful and significant authors in all modern fiction, Fyodor Dostoevsky was the son of a harsh and domineering army surgeon who was murdered by his own serfs (slaves), an event that was extremely important in shaping Dostoevsky's view of social and economic issues. He studied to be an engineer and began work as a draftsman. However, his first novel, Poor Folk (1846), was so well received that he abandoned engineering for writing. In 1849, Dostoevsky was arrested for being a part of a revolutionary group that owned an illegal printing press. He was sentenced to be executed, but the sentence was changed at the last minute, and he was sent to a prison camp in Siberia instead.…    

Fyodor Dostoyevsky(18211881) spent four years in a convict prison in Siberia, after which he was obliged to enlist in the army. His novels, including Crime and Punishmentand The Brothers Karamazov, rank among the greatest of the nineteenth century in any language. Robert A.
