Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tolstoy's novella blends fiction and historical fact to portray a legendary Avar chieftain who switched sides in the nineteenth-century Russo-Caucasian war. Inspired by the author's military service, Hadji Murád offers riveting views of warfare and treason, murder and vengeance, and behind-the-scenes political plotting. An uncharacteristically brief story by the creator of War and Peace, it voices Tolstoy's pacifist beliefs. 

This novella also provides a compelling depiction of the Caucasus, a mountainous territory between the Black Sea and the Caspian, prized for its strategic location and natural resources. Located at the crossroads of three empires—Turkey, Persia, and Russia—the region has long struggled with incursions by its neighbors and remains a troubled corner of the world to this day. Tolstoy's realistic pictures of life in a war zone raise enduringly relevant issues of life and death.

Synopsis:

Hadji Murad (also known as Hadji Murat) is a novel written by Leo Tolstoy and not published until after his death in 1912. The final work of Tolstoy, Hadji Murad is about an Avar revel commander who seeks personal revenge and forges an uneasy alliance with the Russians who he had been previously fighting. Hadji Murad is highly recommended for those who enjoy the writings of Leo Tolstoy and also for those who are discovering Leo Tolstoy works for the first time.

Synopsis:

A simmering feud between Russians and Chechens boils over into a bloody war in this critically acclaimed novella, which draws upon the legends surrounding the Avar warrior chieftain known as Hadji Murád.
