The feathery tribe : Robert Ridgway and the modern study of birds by Daniel Lewis( Book )

"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. Driven by a desire to advance science, as well as by ego, pride, honor, insecurity, religion and other clashing sensibilities, they struggled to absorb the implications of evolution after Darwin. In the process, they dramatically reshaped the study of birds. Daniel Lewis here explores the professionalization of ornithology through one of its key figures: Robert Ridgway, the Smithsonian Institution's first curator of birds and 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. He explores the inner workings of the Smithsonian and the role of collectors working in the field and reveals previously unknown details of the ornithological journal The Auk and the untold story of the color dictionaries for which Ridgway is known"--

The Empire strikes out : Mexican nationbuilding and the Ferrocarril Sud-Pacífico de México, 1880-1951 by Daniel Lewis( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work scrutinizes Mexican treatment of the Ferrocarril Sud-Pacifico de Mexico (the SP de Mexico) between 1880 and 1951. The railroad, called the Sonora Railway between 1880 and 1909, lost $50 million during its years in Mexico. After 1909, the Southern Pacific, the world's largest transportation company, owned the railroad. In studying the reasons for the railroad's consistent failures, the dissertation looks at five often inter-related elements: outdated and distorted notions of conquest and penetration that served to motivate the railroad, the effects of Mexican legal mechanisms generally, the railroad's identity as either Mexican or U.S., the issue of otherness, and the influence of the physical proximity of the United States combined with the line's distance from central Mexico
