As I See It is a collection of essays on Armenian-American culture, politics, and current affairs by the late Leo Sarkisian (1934-1992), a prolific writer, commentator and activist who served for many years as regional chairman of the Armenian National Committee.

During five decades of political activism, Sarkisian became widely regarded as a leader in the effort to promote and modernize the Armenian Cause. Working on behalf of the Armenian National Committee, Sarkisian was instrumental in politicizing the Armenian Genocide issue and worked in numerous forums- the United Nations, the United States Congress, the media, public schools, and grassroots coalitions - to present the story of dispossessed people as an international question of contemporary relevance.

The book is arranged into six sections, entitled "Early Writings," "Armenian-American Community Life," "The Armenian Self-Image," "The Armenian Genocide," "International Politics," and "Armenian-American Culture." The essays contained therein were written between 1951 and 1992, during Sarkisian's several stints as a columnist for The Armenian Weekly.

This carefully crafted ebook: “Crime and Punishment (The Unabridged Garnett Translation)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. This is the version based on the Unabridged Garnett Translation. Crime and Punishment is a novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, first published in 1866. It is the second of Dostoyevsky's full-length novels following his return from ten years of exile in Siberia. Crime and Punishment focuses on the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Rodion Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in St. Petersburg who formulates and executes a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker for her cash. Raskolnikov argues that with the pawnbroker's money he can perform good deeds to counterbalance the crime, while ridding the world of a worthless vermin. He also commits this murder to test his own hypothesis that some people are naturally capable of such things, and even have the right to do them. Several times throughout the novel, Raskolnikov justifies his actions by connecting himself mentally with Napoleon Bonaparte, believing that murder is permissible in pursuit of a higher purpose. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky ( 1821 – 1881) was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist and philosopher. Dostoyevsky's literary works explore human psychology in the context of the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmosphere of 19th-century Russia. Many literary critics rate him as one of the greatest and most prominent psychologists in world literature.
