11 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Albert Camus, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, always refused the existentialist label with which he is usually associated. Introducing Camus portrays a man who was not only in the tradition of the great French humanists, but an important Resistance fighter during World War II, and also a great sensualist who created a personal and literary myth out of sun, sea, sex, football and theatre - his response to the "absurdity" of life

"Dostoevsky draws a grim portrait of nineteenth century Russia, a society divided into the depraved rich and the helpless poor.

Crime and punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Raskolnikov commits murder. He then must deal both with the police, and his own guilty conscience. Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excrutiating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination
