Thanks for stopping by 
Welcome!  This section was re-organized and from 6 original pages there are now twelve.  It is still in "preview stage."
Update 2009:  Re-categorization still in progress.  Updates to several pages done, titles added.  Though not very precise in many cases, the order seems to make enough sense that whatever your specific area of study or interest, you should be able to find whatever relevant information is here.
To say that there is often overlap between the categories is a monumental understatement.  Volumes are listed chronologically and categorized on a best perceived match basis.  Pretty coffee table books and tediously serious references on the same page was sometimes unavoidable.  Most but not all of these titles have been seen... please send your informed suggestion, if you find anything out of place.  There are no notes.  It's left for you to research the content.
