Site Bibliography

This is a bibliography for the entire blog. It has been updated incrementally as I have used different books and web pages to write posts, and it is organized first by theme and then by author. If a reference is not listed here, it is because it has cited in full in the post concerned.  Where no author is known (as in the case of some web pages) those are listed at the end of each of the themes below.
