The first book-length study on the subject in any language, Tolstoy and the Religious Culture of His Time treats Tolstoy's experience not as a conversion moment but as the evolution of his religious outlook over half a lifetime. Inessa Medzhibovskaya bases her discussion on Tolstoy's religious ongoing dialogue with the tradition of conversion in Europe and Russia, from Saint Paul to Dostoevsky, while thoroughly reexaming several of his major works from this perspective: War and Peace, Anna Karenina, The Death of Ivan Il'ich, A Confession, and On Life.
Seymour Reit re-creates the true story of Will Knox, a nineteen-year-old boy who undertook the daring and dangerous task of transporting 183 cannons from New York's Fort Ticonderoga to Boston--in the dead of winter--to help George Washington win an important battle.
