Bibliography of Reference Works 

As might be imagined, the list of articles, monographs, books, and web sites consulted during the research and writing of the book and this website is lengthy. The following is by no means a complete list of everything I used during the research process, but rather is a list of the most important or significant works on particular subjects, or simply works that provided me with the most information on a particular subject.

(Editorial note: The book this site is based on was researched and written from the early 2000s to the mid-2010s. I'm sure more recent works have come out that would have provided me with more characters. But I'm not doing research on this topic any more--had to move on to other things--so I missed them).
