All background articles are found in the EBSCO databases of Southern Methodist University Libraries in Dallas, Tx.

Where it is possible, I provide direct links to available online sources. Where there is not a publicly available version online, I have posted a link-  [SOURCE]  -to EBSCO where the article is available either through download or purchase. In most cases, the reader will have to register (and, in some instances, pay) for permission to download.

PLEASE  BE  AWARE that all university libraries and many public libraries have some arrangement for public access to their databases. If you do not have an ID as a student, faculty member, or alumnus, the library almost certainly has a way for you to register as a “guest” for access to any of the EBSCO databasess to which they subscribe.
