  1. Each week has a short reading list to supplement the documents in the handbook.  The documents are taken from a variety sources; public records, memoirs, newspapers, parliamentary debates, speeches. Be sure to think about the nature of these sources when reading them. Who wrote the source? When? Why? What is its value? How best can it be used?

     ****There are a number of excellent general 'text' book types to cover this period and it might be useful for you to consult one or two of these each week as general background, to supplement your specialized reading. Where possible I will indicate the various chapters from a few for each week. Also if there is anything specific I wish you to read I will send you details of the article the week beforehand.
