Meet Raskolnikov, the best reason you’ll ever have not to kill someone. Inner turmoil made all the more complex and soul-wrenching in Dostoyevsky’s typical style, Crime and Punishment is one of those books you’ll both pat yourself on the back for finishing and thank yourself for picking up.

Amateurs and professionals studying birds at the end of the nineteenth century were a contentious, passionate group with goals that intersected, collided and occasionally merged in their writings and organizations. Robert Ridgway, the Smithsonian Institution's first curator of birds, was one of North America's most important natural scientists. Exploring a world in which the uses of language, classification and accountability between amateurs and professionals played essential roles, Lewis offers a vivid introduction to Ridgway and shows how his work fundamentally influenced the direction of American and international ornithology.
