Why We Love This

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. New York: Simon Schuster, 1958. 17th printing of the 1942 "inner sanctum" edition, translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude. A handsome edition, sturdily produced to contain 1,362 pages, with maps, endpapers and a guide to the principal characters. The vast sweep of Russia's epic struggle to beat off Napoleon forms the backdrop to this astonishing dissection of society, where the aristocrats spoke French with greater ease than they did their own tongue.
