Above is a listing of the books that you will need for
the seminar. In the age of AMAZON and other sources, many of you may
wish to order your own copies in advance of the Seminar itself
(although some of the titles may not show up even on AMAZON). A major
source for most of these titles is: INTERLINK BOOKS in Massachusetts www.interlinkbooks.com. If
you would prefer that we order these titles for you, please let me know
by e-mail or US Mail and we will make them available for purchase
through our university bookstore.
