War and Peace

New Edition

Leo Tolstoy
Translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude and Revised and edited by Amy Mandelker

Oxford World's Classics

  • The Maudes' translation of Tolstoy's epic masterpiece has long been considered the best English version, and now for the first time it has been revised to bring it fully into line with modern approaches to the text. French passages are restored, Anglicization of Russian names removed, and outmoded expressions updated.
  • A new introduction by Any Mandelker considers the novel's literary and historical context, the nature of the work and Tolstoy's artistic and philosophical aims.
  • New, expanded notes provide historical background and identifications, as well as insight into Russian life and society.
  • Includes lists of historical characters and the fictional families, a chronology of Tolstoy and of historical events in the novel, five maps, and Tolstoy's essay 'Some Words about War and Peace' in an Appendix.
