CRIME AND PUNISHMENT by Fyodor Mikhailovitch Dostoevsky (1821-1881) is an unparalleled psychological study of the criminal mind, conscience, guilt, and redemption, coupled with an examination of spiritual purity and devotion. The tension-filled story of Raskolnikov - a student who plans and executes the murder of an old moneylender -- of Sonia, the pitiful young woman from the streets who cares for him, and the inevitable events that follow is considered Dostoevsky's masterpiece.

Mired in poverty, the student Raskolnikov nevertheless thinks well of himself. Of his pawnbroker he takes a different view, and in deciding to do away with her he sets in motion his own tragic downfall. Dostoyevsky's penetrating novel of an intellectual whose moral compass goes haywire, and the detective who hunts him down for his terrible crime, is a stunning psychological portrait, a thriller and a profound meditation on guilt and retribution.From the Publisher:
