I am in need of a book to use for my senior paper. If you guys had some recommendations I would appreciate them.

If you want an alternate recommendation, I would suggest Leo Tolstoy's Resurrection. It is the last of his three great novels, and is substantially less well-known than either Anna Karenina or War and Peace. In Russia, the last two are part of a mandatory school literature course, but this one is not. Nevertheless, I just started reading it (about a quarter of the way through by now) and it is still great literature as far as I am concerned.

Even within its first hundred pages, there's a lot of food for thought. In particular, his views on the military are fairly unique today, though it's debatable if he would have had the same opinion of the modern soldiers as the one he had of the 19th Century Guard Corps. And of course, its depiction of our 1880s provides a lot of arguments on both sides of the 1917 Revolution/"Great October" debate.
