MercatorNet: Anna Karenina and the family. Cinderella reimagined. Are refugees dangerous?

MercatorNet
During the southern summer I filled in one of the glaring gaps in my literary experience: I found the two volumes of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina among our imitation leather-bound collection of classics (courtesy of Heron Books, London, 1967) and began reading. Approximately 800 pages and several weeks later I understood why the novel, set in the changing times of late Czarist Russia, is so admired. The psychological insight of the great writer is astounding and the trajectory of the individual lives extremely convincing. 
However, it is his famous opening line about happy and unhappy families that suggested today's article to me. I am sure it has all been said before, one way or another, but it was a useful exercise to write it down and, I hope, a refresher of memories for those who know the novel well.
