Peace and War - Leo Tolstoy is famous as the author of War and Peace and Anna Karenina and he is also known for his pacifist influence on Gandhi and other peace movements in the 20th century. Tolstoy was excommunicated from the Russian Orthodox Church in 1901 and he had no patience with either the Tsarist wars or the Russian Revolution. What lies beneath these known facts is a spirit strenuously engaged with the deepest questions of life and death, belief and despair. In Tolstoy's novels, stories and diaries we hear his struggles and his exuberant joys.
