Although each post on this blog can stand alone,  many of them build upon the background and context laid out in prior entries, for the sake of brevity and to avoid over-repetition.

However, anyone intending to read more widely will find it easiest to do so sequentially in publication order, as indicated below.

As a rule the tagging system should indicate which previous posts to check for any information that seems to be missing from later ones, and this index may also assist in searching for particular topics.
