About the Author

Isaiah Berlin (1909-1997) was one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century. A fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, he was the author of many books, including "Against the Current", "The Crooked Timber of Humanity", and "The Roots of Romanticism" (all Princeton). Henry Hardy, a Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, is one of Isaiah Berlin's literary trustees. He has edited several other volumes by Berlin, and is currently preparing Berlin's letters and remaining unpublished writings for publication.

Reviews

"[Berlin] has a deep and subtle feeling for the puzzle of Tolstoy's personality, and he writes throughout ... with a wonderful eloquence."--William Barrett, New York Times "Beautifully written and suggestive."--W. H. Auden, New Yorker "A brilliant essay ... a searching and profound analysis."--E. H. Carr, Times Literary Supplement "So entertaining, as well as acute, that the reader hardly notices that it is learned too."--Arnold Toynbee, Observer "The most important study of Tolstoy's thought written in English for a long time."--Noel Annan, Listener "Berlin's stunning command of the resources of scholarship, his sensitivity to literature and to character, and his eloquence as a writer give this essay the luster of a virtuoso performance."--Atlantic "Delightful to read."--Peter Calvocoressi, Sunday Times (London) "Ingenious and subtle."--Max Beloff, Manchester Guardian
