Scholarly interest in Dostoevsky's work remains unabated. In response to a long-standing need for a reference guide in English, Leatherbarrow (Russian, University of Sheffield, UK) has compiled an annotated bibliography to Dostoevsky criticism from 1846 to 1988, culling more than 1,200 essays and books from the vast field of Dostoevsky scholarship. The compiler decided to select what he deemed "the best critical writings" plus works (regardless of intrinsic merit) that show major shifts in critical approaches. The guide contains a chronological listing of Dostoevsky's important writings as first published in Russia; the annotated bibliography of secondary literature; and an author/subject index. The bibliography is particularly strong on British, American, and Russian criticism (English translations noted), although some European--especially French--studies are represented. The bibliography is arranged by year, and within year it is alphabetized by author. The subject indexing is confusing and limited in range, but students will find it of use in locating essays on themes such as parricide and revolution. Scholars should also consult A.G.S. Dostoevskaia's enormous bibliographic guide to pre-Revolutionary Russian criticism, Bibliograficheskii. . . (St. Petersburg, 1906), the Dostoevsky Museum's F.M. Dostoevskii: Bibliogr. proizvedenii. . . 1917-1965 (Moscow, 1968), and the annual checklist of criticism compiled in Dostoevsky Studies (1972- ), the bulletin of the International Dostoevsky Society. Leatherbarrow's useful guide may be recommended for both upper-division undergraduate and graduate libraries. -A. N. Vinh, Yale University
