    In the setting of what is present-day Kazakhstan, Tolstoy examines two psychological problems. The first dilemma is that of a young man who desires both fulfilling love and a place as a respected member of society. The other is the difficulty of a primitive society to accept domination by a higher culture that has no understanding of the traditions it asks its colonists to cast aside.

    I can't agree with Chris above. Somebody has to translate Tolstoy into English or most of us in the US couldn't read his books. For example, I loved the Audible version of Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment" but had a hard time following "The Brothers Karamazov." A professor friend of mine read a different translation and it's one of his favorites.

    This book could be a quick way to see if you want to do "War and Peace".
