Source-Books for Teaching and Studying

Source-Books in pdf are meant to offer students and teachers varied texts, graphics, and brief commentaries to help them in their studies; with these are included elaborations on select topics. As of June 2009, five such Source-Books have been completed (except for proofreading):

Barbara Lachman and I have been compiling these Source-Books for years, and they are have been used in classes in a community college. Each student has a (college-supplied) laptop at his or her desk, and each is given at the beginning of the semester a free CD-ROM containing the Source-Book. The teacher can teach from a laptop, or from a hard copy he or she has run off. Works beautifully.
