Summary

In Hadji Murat, Tolstoy describes the extraordinary meeting of two completely polarised cultures - the refined, Europeanised court of the Russian Tsar, and the fierce, Muslim chiefdoms of the Chechnian hills. This brilliant, culturally resonant fiction was written towards the end of Tolstoy's life, but the conflict it describes has obvious, ironic parallels with current affairs today.

It is 1852 and Hadji Murat is one of the most feared mountain chiefs and the scourge of the Russian army. When he comes to surrender, the Russians are delighted. Or have they naively welcomed a double-agent into their midst? With its series of sardonic portraits Tolstoy's story is an astute and incredibly witty commentary on the nature of political relations and states at war.
