The reading includes two excerpts from Nancy Ruttenburg's most recent monograph, Dostoevsky's Democracy (Princeton UP, 2008):
1. the background reading, chapter 5 (The Flesh of the Political), pp. 140-169, and
2. the principal reading, pp. 170-176, a section of the Conclusion (Carmen Horrendum).
In addition, Professor Ruttenburg appended a copy of her Guggenheim Proposal (successful) that traces the trajectory of her continuing research project (to download, click here).
