<div> Dostoevsky’s Russian chauvinism and anti-Semitism have long posed problems for his readers and critics. How could the author of <i>The Brothers Karamazov</i> also be the source of the slurs against Jews in <i>Diary of a Writer</i>? And where is the celebrated Christian humanist in the nationalist outbursts of <i>The Idiot</i>? These enigmas—the coexistence of humanism and hatred, faith and doubt—are linked, Susan McReynolds tells us, in&nbsp; <i>Redemption and the Merchant God</i>. Her book analyzes Dostoevsky’s novels and <i>Diary</i> to show how the author’s anxieties about Christianity can help solve the riddle of his anti-Semitism as well as that of his Russian messianism. <br /> <br /> </div>
