co-operation with AMAZON.COM
our very own
Bookshop is now up and operational! Offering over 100 titles,
this is your big chance to not only fill some of those holes
in your collection, but also to support my efforts with this
site! Check it out today.
September 1999: First, I feel that I
must apologise for the lack of updates recently. However,
I hope that some of you will agree that summer is no time
to sit in front of the computer. That said, I have noticed
the time of year hasn't adversely effected our site stats,
and thus I do feel a little guilty. I will keep this short,
but let me at least say that a major update is in the works.
Also, for all those who thought about supporting this site
by purchasing a hard-copy of one of Dostoevsky's masterpieces,
but suspected that AMAZON
just didn't have the lowest prices... you can now shop
around using the search engine below. Amazingly, just
by making a search you will be helping
us. No purchases are necessary. We thank everyone who takes
the time to try this brand-new service. One
note however: if you find that AMAZON
does in fact have the lowest prices, please consider coming
back to this page and using one of our AMAZON
links before making the purchase. Thanks!
10 January 1999: Several visitors
to the site have suggested that we make it a little easier to
actually buy Dostoevsky's books, or at least to find out which
translations, etc., are actually available out there in the
ether. To that end, we will be setting up a "store"
section where you may do just that. You may also now simply
click the "search" button below to bring up a complete
list of Dostoevsky's catalog available from AMAZON.COM,
the "world's biggest bookstore". And I think it's
true what they say, that "chances are, if they don't have
it, it isn't available online".
So if you were thinking of buying something by Dostoevsky online
(or anything else for that matter) but don't have a particular
preference in terms of where you do it, please consider choosing
Amazon for the simple reason that you will be supporting our
ongoing efforts with THE DOSTOEVSKY RESEARCH STATION. You probably
guessed it, we get a
kick-back from Amazon on any purchases you make IF you do it
by going through one of our links to AMAZON.COM.
It probably won't amount to much, but it would a nice gesture.
I should mention that Barnes & Noble offer a similar deal,
but Amazon was the first online bookstore and I, for whatever
reason, feel some loyalty towards them. I considered offering
both actually, but Barnes & Noble has it written into their
agreement that by becoming one of their associates you agree
to not associate your site with any other online bookstore (especially
AMAZON). Maybe it is just me, but this strikes me as unnecessarily
competitive. Please, if you have a sec let me know what you
think about all this. --

Alba, Feodor Dostoevsky (1993)
Anderson, Roger B. Dostoevsky : Myths of Duality
PG3328.Z6 A5 1986 University of Florida Press, 1986. This
book incorporates Dostoevsky's interest in nonmaterial dimensions
of being. Mr. Anderson writes in the beginning that Dostoevsky
conjectured about life's possibilities more broadly than
most of his contemporaries and challenged their assumptions
that psychological motivations are determined by biographical
and social conditions. This book tries to make sense of
the religious ambiguity in Dostoevsky's work.
evil genius,” -- Maxim Gorky
“So great is the worth of Dostoevsky that to have produced
him is by itself sufficient justification for the existence
of the Russian people in the world: and he will bear witness
for his country-men at the last judgement of the nations.”
Berdyaev (Prague, 1923).
“I don’t like Dostoevsky. He is like the rat, slithering along
in hate, in the shadows, and in order to belong to the light,
professing love, all love.” --
"Dostoevsky gives me more than any scientist, more than Gauss!"
-- Albert Einstein
