"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"--

Deep-seated, historically-conditioned elements also underlay the relationship: a knowledge on the part of Mexico that because military force had not worked in the mid-nineteenth century, other methods had to be used to maintain sovereignty. For its part, the railroad felt the influence of its past successes in the United States, and attempted to operate as if it was still in the United States rather than in another country. Ultimately, the relationship provided Mexico with the opportunity to fully confront the tensions and apparent contradictions of welcoming large doses of foreign capital and activity while simultaneously strengthening the country's economy and stabilizing its political structure
