Editorial headnotes, indented and in smaller type this size, identify the author and comment about the contents of each selection. For easier reading of headnotes use a sans-serif font like Arial or Geneva, or increase the font size to 14 point. Ellipses or bracketed notes in the text mark the few cases where material has been omitted. At the end of each document the reader will find the editor's mailing, fax, and e-mail addresses. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
Dozens of journals, conference reports, books, official documents, and other sources were examined during the four years this collection has been under preparation. A supplementary bibliography of additional documents and modern references is far from complete but will be added to as time permits. Some of those entries may be scanned, edited, and annotated for future inclusion in this anthology.
A brief general introduction sets the material of the anthology in an historical perspective. It ends with a short list of representative anthology selections that make possible a quick sampling of the variety of articles, papers, and other documents that live at this site.
