The extracts have been taken directly from the above source books, with some small editorial changes. These changes have entailed the re-numbering of Sections and Figures. In view of the breadth of content and style of the source books, there is some overlap and repetition of material between chapters and significant differences in style, but these features have been left in order to retain the flavour and readability of the individual chapters.
