An event to be celebrated, a "rare Dostoesvsky translation" (William Mills Todd III, Harvard University) that fully captures the literary achievements of the original. So essential is Crime and Punishment (1866) to global literature and even to our understanding of roiling Russia today that Edward Snowden, while confined to the Moscow airport, was given only three books to help him absorb the culture, one being Fyodor Dostoevsky's classic in which Raskolnikov, an impoverished student, sees himself as extraordinary and therefore free to commit crimes--even murder--in a work that best embodies the existential dilemmas of man's instinctual will to power. Yet English translators have long struggled with excessive literalism, and no translation exists that is truly felicitous to the literary nuances of the original prose. Now, acclaimed translator Michael R. Katz addresses these challenges with new insights into the linguistic richness, the subtle tones, and the cunning humor. With its searing and unique portrayal of the labyrinthine universe of nineteenth-century St. Petersburg, this sparkling rendering of Dostoevsky's masterpiece will be read for decades to come.

Vagrants and beggars were placed in the stocks or whipped out of town, while traitors and murderers were usually put to death. This book investigates the thieves, vagabonds, pickpockets, swindlers, rebels and cut-throats of Elizabethan England, and looks at how they were punished.

Today, questions about how and why societies punish are deeply emotive and hotly contested. In Crime and Punishment in Contemporary Culture, Claire Valier argues that criminal justice is a key site for the negotiation of new collective identities and modes of belonging. Exploring both popular cultural forms and changes in crime policies and criminal law, Valier elaborates new forms of critical engagement with the politics of crime and punishment. In doing so, the book discusses: · Teletechnologies, punishment and new collectivities · The cultural politics of victims rights · Discourses on foreigners, crime and diaspora · Terror, the death penalty and the spectacle of violence. Crime and Punishment in Contemporary Culture makes a timely and important contribution to debate on the possibilities of justice in the media age.
