Leo Tolstoy is known, word-wide, as one of the greatest authors of all time. His works include the masterpieces "War and Peace" and "Anna Karenina", depicting Russian life realistically, yet with a writing flaire that is gripping. These two books stand at the peak of realistic fiction.

Tolstoy was a moral philosopher, noted for his ideas of nonviolent resistance through his work of "The Kingdom of God is Within You", which in turn had a profound influence on men like Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King.

You can read his works, free of charge, online or off. You may copy his works for personal use or for your own web pages. HOWEVER, please DO NOT change the text! Help us maintain the integrity of his work, errors and all.
