(I made every effort to note, catalog, or bookmark all sources I read while researching and writing this book, though it’s possible I missed a few here or there. Many of these do not appear in the book Bibliography. Right after I sent the book to press I discovered another folder on my computer with research material I read but never sorted and catalogued.)
