Formatted abstract
Appearing on the eve of the Tolstoy centenary in 2010, this unpretentious book addresses its subject from a perspective seldom encountered in the mainstream of Tolstoy studies: proclaiming itself ‘a work of political science’, it offers an account of the novelist as ‘a Christian thinker on political violence’. The author, who teaches political science at Waikato University and has to his credit monographs on Reinhold Niebuhr and the morality of the ‘just war’, writes primarily for those seeking a ‘faith-based attitude’ to the problems of politics and violence, but canvasses issues of interest to anyone grappling with the beliefs, contradictions and prejudices that define Tolstoy’s worldview.
