This is an excellent book with which to start learning electrodynamics. It's very well written and unlike many text books, very readable. Nowhere near as complete or encyclopedic as Jackson; but, I suppose thats the difference between an undergraduate text and a graduate text.
The central question is whether Raskolnikov will live with moral integrity. He vacillates, sometimes tediously. Adopting a fashionable amorality that he doesn't really believe in, he commits a brutal ax-murder-cum-petty-theft. Alternately he berates himself and refuses to regret his actions; dreads investigators, taunts them, and resolves to turn himself in. He spends much time fraught nearly to the point of madness, either wandering the streets of Petersburg or lying ill on the sofa in his closet-size room. And in the meantime, he displays extraordinary generosity, firmness of principle, and moral insight. It's a strange book, slow to introduce important characters, and slower to reveal what's inside them. I'm still deciding whether all of them were believable. The book offers humor, lurid melodrama, and lengthy debates over social and philosophical questions. Many scenes and passages are striking and memorable. The portrait of 19th-century Russian society is very interesting.
