Crime and Punishment in Russia surveys the evolution of criminal justice in Russia during a span of more than 300 years, from the early modern era to the present day. Maps, organizational charts, a list of important dates, and a glossary help the reader to navigate key institutional, legal, political, and cultural developments in this evolution. The book approaches Russia both on its own terms and in light of changes in Europe and the wider West, to which Russia's rulers and educated elites continuously looked for legal models and inspiration. It examines the weak advancement of the rule of the law over the period and analyzes the contrasts and seeming contradictions of a society in which capital punishment was sharply restricted in the mid-1700s, while penal and administrative exile remained heavily applied until 1917 and even beyond. Daly also provides concise political, social, and economic contextual detail, showing how the story of crime and punishment fits into the broader narrative of modern Russian history. This is an important and useful book for all students of modern Russian history as well as of the history of crime and punishment in modern Europe.

How a society defines crimes and prosecutes criminals illuminates its cultural values, social norms, and political expectations. In Murder Most Russian, Louise McReynolds uses a fascinating series of murders and subsequent trials that took place in the wake of the 1864 legal reforms enacted by Tsar Alexander II to understand the impact of these reforms on Russian society before the Revolution of 1917. For the first time in Russian history, the accused were placed in the hands of juries of common citizens in courtrooms that were open to the press. Drawing on a wide array of sources, McReynolds reconstructs murders that gripped Russian society, from the case of Andrei Gilevich, who advertised for a personal secretary and beheaded the respondent as a way of perpetrating insurance fraud, to the beating death of Marianna Time at the hands of two young aristocrats who hoped to steal her diamond earrings. As McReynolds shows, newspapers covered such trials extensively, transforming the courtroom into the most public site in Russia for deliberation about legality and justice. To understand the cultural and social consequences of murder in late imperial Russia, she analyzes the discussions that arose among the emergent professional criminologists, defense attorneys, and expert forensic witnesses about what made a defendant's behavior "criminal." She also deftly connects real criminal trials to the burgeoning literary genre of crime fiction and fruitfully compares the Russian case to examples of crimes both from Western Europe and the United States in this period. Murder Most Russian will appeal not only to readers interested in Russian culture and true crime but also to historians who study criminology, urbanization, the role of the social sciences in forging the modern state, evolving notions of the self and the psyche, the instability of gender norms, and sensationalism in the modern media.

This is a magisterial account of the day-to-day practice of Russian criminal justice in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Nancy Kollmann contrasts Russian written law with its pragmatic application by local judges, arguing that this combination of formal law and legal institutions with informal, flexible practice contributed to the country's social and political stability. She also places Russian developments in the broader context of early modern European state-building strategies of governance and legal practice. She compares Russia's rituals of execution to the 'spectacles of suffering' of contemporary European capital punishment and uncovers the dramatic ways in which even the tsar himself, complying with Moscow's ideologies of legitimacy, bent to the moral economy of the crowd in moments of uprising. Throughout, the book assesses how criminal legal practice used violence strategically, administering horrific punishments in some cases and in others accommodating with local communities and popular concepts of justice.

This Bilingual English-Russian Edition includes in original famous novel "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoevsky, translated by Constance Garnett in 1914 and illustrated (11 illustrations) by Maria Tsaneva. The text is arranged in parallel English-Russian chapters (the Russian are marked Italic). This is a great way to read and listen to both English and Russian text.You can read the entire chapter in English or in Russian, or you can follow along as each individual English paragraph is paired with the corresponding Russian paragraph. The text is relatively not very simple, vocabulary and grammar wise, so for beginners this should be a great challenge. Crime and Punishment is a novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, first published in the literary journal The Russian Messenger in twelve parts during 1866. It was later published in a single volume. Crime and Punishment is the second of Dostoyevsky's full-length novels following his return from ten years of exile in Siberia and the first great novel of his "golden" period of writing. The novel focuses on the moral dilemmas of Rodion Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in St. Petersburg who formulates and executes a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker. Raskolnikov argues that with the pawnbroker's money he can perform good deeds to counterbalance the crime, while ridding the world of a worthless vermin. He also commits this murder to test his own hypothesis that some people are naturally capable of such things, and even have the right to do them. He justifies his actions by comparing himself with Napoleon Bonaparte, believing that murder is permissible in pursuit of a "higher" purpose.

Excerpt from Crime and Punishment: A Russian Realistic Novel He had not far to go; he knew the exact distance between his lodging and present destination - just seven hundred and thirty paces. He had counted them when his plan only oated through his brain like a vague dream. At that time, he him self would not have believed it capable of realisation; he merely dallied in fancy with a chimera which was both terrible and seductive. But a month had elapsed, and he had already begun to view it in a different light. Although he reproached himself throughout his soliloquies with irresolution and a want of energy, he had accustomed himself, little by little, and, indeed, in spite of himself, to consider the realisation of his dream a possibility, though be doubted his own resolution. He was but just now rehearsing his enterprise, and his agitation was increasing at every step. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

'A truly great translation . . . This English version really is better' - A. N. Wilson, The Spectator TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2014 This acclaimed new translation of Dostoyevsky's 'psychological record of a crime' gives his dark masterpiece of murder and pursuit a renewed vitality, expressing its jagged, staccato urgency and fevered atmosphere as never before. Raskolnikov, a destitute and desperate former student, wanders alone through the slums of St. Petersburg, deliriously imagining himself above society's laws. But when he commits a random murder, only suffering ensues. Embarking on a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a suspicious police investigator, Raskolnikov finds the noose of his own guilt tightening around his neck. Only Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can offer the chance of redemption. Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) was born in Moscow and made his name in 1846 with the novella Poor Folk. He spent several years in prison in Siberia as a result of his political activities, an experience which formed the basis of The House of the Dead. In later life, he fell in love with a much younger woman and developed a ruinous passion for roulette. His subsequent great novels include Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, Demons and The Brothers Karamazov. Oliver Ready is Research Fellow in Russian Society and Culture at St Antony's College, Oxford. He is general editor of the anthology, The Ties of Blood: Russian Literature from the 21st Century (2008), and Consultant Editor for Russia, Central and Eastern Europe at the Times Literary Supplement.

Raskolnikov, a conflicted former student, lives in a tiny, rented room in Saint Petersburg. He refuses all help, even from his friend Razumikhin, and devises a plan to murder and rob an elderly pawn-broker and money-lender, Alyona Ivanovna. His motivation comes from the overwhelming sense that he is predetermined to kill the old woman by some power outside of himself.Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov est un ancien étudiant en Droit âgé de 23 ans, sans le sou. Par manque d'argent, il a dû abandonner ses études et vit dans un quartier mal famé de Saint-Pétersbourg. Rongé par la pauvreté, il s'isole du reste du monde. Après qu'il vend son dernier bien, la montre de son père, à une usurière, une idée lui vient à l'esprit : un meurtre est-il moralement tolérable s'il conduit à une amélioration de la condition humaine ? Il a décidé d'assassiner l'usurière depuis quelque temps, mais son plan ne se déroule pas comme prévu et il commet un double meurtre. Pris de remords et de culpabilité, il se rend compte qu'il ne peut être pardonné et qu'il ne sera jamais un grand homme, comme il l'espère tant. Raskolnikov passe du crime au châtiment. Après être tombé malade et être resté au lit, cloué par la fièvre, pendant plusieurs jours, Raskolnikov s’imagine que tous ceux qu’il rencontre le suspectent du meurtre ; la conscience de son crime le rend presque fou. Mais il rencontre Sonia Semionovna, une jeune prostituée dont il tombe amoureux.
