Below are the resources I have used for research and reference in many of my postings you will find references to sources which will link directly to the bibliographic entries on this page. For simplicity, I have referred to each entry by the last name of its first-listed author, and if there are multiple books or resources under that name, each subsequent listing will be numbered.
