This book on the impact of Chinese civilization upon Tolstoy's thinking and writing reveals new resources in the study of a great Russian novelist. Making use of newly available Russian materials, Mr. Bodde explores Tolstoy’s correspondence and his reading and writing on Chinese subjects to determine his conception of Chinese culture and how deeply it affected his thought in such fields as music, politics, ethics.
