1. Under western eyes [2010]

Book
411 p. : ill. ; 22 cm.
This masterpiece of political fiction is one of Joseph Conrad's most important late novels. Joseph Conrad's last overtly political novel, "Under Western Eyes" is considered to be one of his greatest works. Set in pre-Revolutionary Russia, the novel tells the story of a young student involuntarily involved in an assassination and explores themes of terrorism, surveillance, and the suffering of ordinary people caught up in political strife. The introduction and appendices to this edition provide context for Conrad's own political views, as well as material on contemporary Eastern European anarchism and terrorism. This is the only edition with appendices.
