About Book

Book Description
Joseph Conrad's "Under Western Eyes" is the story of a young Russian student named Razumov who when returning home to St. Petersburg, Russia discovers his friend Victor Haldin, an anarchist who has just committed a political assassination, hiding from the police in his apartment. Victor Haldin calls upon his friend Razumov to help him escape and in so doing puts him in the unenviable position of choosing between his loyalties to his friend or to abiding by the authority of the law in the service of justice.

Download Description
The task is not in truth the writing in the narrative form a _precis_ of a strange human document, but the rendering--I perceive it now clearly--of the moral conditions ruling over a large portion of this earth's surface; conditions not easily to be understood, much less discovered in the limits of a story, till some key-word is found; a word that could stand at the back of all the words covering the pages.
