From Library Journal:

Awarded the Nobel Prize in 1965, the late Soviet author is best known for this gigantic epic in which he sought to correct the unfavorable image of the Don Cossacks. With World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, and the Russian Civil War as backdrop, it's an old-fashioned, blood-and-guts narrative, filled with earthly humor and a wealth of colorful characters. The story concerns the fluctuating fortunes of Grigory Melekhov, a young Cossack who is both a hero and a victim of the uprising. This new edition, advertised as being "complete and uncensored," is agreeably readable-a major plus given the work's length and complex scope-although the dialog sometimes offers an incongruous mix of Briticisms (e.g., blighters and buggers) and backwoods American expressions (mebbe not and baccy). The editor, a Slavonic scholar, provides a valuable introduction, notes, bibliography, and background essays. This new edition is highly recommended for all libraries with strong Slavic collections and for any library where a good story is enjoyed, regardless of length.
