Dostoyevsky’s works in many European and Asian countries, as well as the US and Australia. The volume pays special attention to the contribution of western philological schools in the study of Dostoyevsky’s works in the past forty years, since the first publication of the writer’s collected works. The idea of the series was first proposed by V.E. Bango during work on the second Complete Collected Works of F.M. Dostoyevsky. Soon after, Bagno’s proposal was discussed during the 2012 Napoli gathering organized by the International Dostoyevsky Society. The collection consists of the following sections: “Articles and analytic surveys,” “Materials and communications,” and “Publications.” Later, a new section titled “Bibliographies” was appended to the collection by the authors due to the nature of the collection, the main part of which is devoted to the history of the study of Dostoyevsky’s works abroad.
