To keep the number of note citations to a manageable level, I have grouped all the references for a given paragraph of text in a single note keyed to the end of the paragraph. Within the resulting note, references are sequential, with semicolons separating multiple references to a single point in text, and periods marking divisions between points. Dates in the text and notes will help make the relationship between statements in the text and the sources on which they are based clear.
The following abbreviations are used in the Notes. For full forms of these and other shortened citations, see the Bibliography following.
